Is My Child Gifted?

In the very simplest of terms, a gifted child is one with exceptional native intelligence.

However, it is not always so simple. Only a very small portion of gifted individuals are equally exceptional in all areas. A more common expression of giftedness is asynchronous development. That is learners that are highly advanced in one or more areas of development while being average in others

This is why not all gifted individuals will fit the criteria of having a uniformly high general IQ score. A child can score very highly in one section of an IQ test while scoring below average in another and still be considered gifted.
