Is my child (infant or toddler) gifted?
Some children show signs of giftedness at a very young age. Keep in mind, however, that many gifted children do not show signs this early, but begin to show them later. Also know that when parents are aware of the gifted characteristics, they may teach and nurture their child in these areas, resulting in the child merely appearing to be gifted. A truly gifted child shows interest and progress with very little parental encouragement or coaching. It is important to identify gifted children as early as possible so they can be guided and encouraged to develop themselves to their fullest. Take this quick assessment to learn more about the characteristics (suggested by Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D.) to watch for to help you determine if your child may be gifted.
