As parents, we like to think that our children are ahead of the curve in the classroom and life. However, how many can honestly say that they know they’ve spotted signs or traits of giftedness in their son or daughter? In many instances, classroom teachers are the first to suggest that a child may be gifted because they have a large group of similar age kids to use as a comparison. Without such help, determining if a child is gifted may not be so easy but there are signs you can look for including:
Gifted evaluations involve obtaining a bit of background about your child, getting to know your child so that he or she feels comfortable in the office and then completing an individually administered intelligence test that can take about 45 to 90 minutes. The assessment is followed up by verbal feedback and a written report of the results.
