All Gifted, All Day

What is Gifted? Gifted children are those who demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude or competence in one or more academic areas, including reading and math. Their ability is significantly above the norm compared to other students their age. This aptitude can be measured by a performance, achievement or IQ test. If your child asks a lot of questions and prefers adults, they may be gifted.
