There are many definitions of giftedness.  It isn’t hard to recognize children who are gifted in music, athletics, acting or the arts.  Intellectual giftedness must be assessed and this is most often done through 1) an IQ Test administered by a psychologist combined with 2) parent observation of the qualities mentioned in our quiz and those listed below.  Schools also designate children as “gifted” after they take a group intelligence test to qualify for a Gifted and Talented (G&T) or GATE program.  Most schools with gifted programs will designate students as “gifted” and will admit them to the program if they test in the “very bright” or in the “gifted” range.  Schools are not necessarily looking for profoundly gifted students for their programs.

Here are some other signs of giftedness in a child:

  • Excellent memory
  • Long attention span (if interested)
  • Sensitivity (in regard to feelings)
  • Perfectionist
  • Curiosity
  • Very energetic
  • Wide range of interests
  • Questions authority
  • Good at jigsaw puzzles
  • Shows compassion
  • Intense
  • Great sense of humor
  • Morally sensitive

Psychologists and schools use many different tests to assess giftedness in children.  We’ve helped thousands of parents across the world prepare their children for both achievement and intelligence tests.  Knowing what to expect on an upcoming test can make a significant difference in your child’s score.  If you are interested in helping your child prepare for a future test, sign up for the 100 Free Questions on the top right side of this page and get started right now!
