Gifted Children and Learning

When we think of gifted children and learning, we think of children that are brilliant in math, languages and English. However, in this week’s ASK THE CULPEPPERS, the traditional way we see a child being “gifted” is narrow compared to what is really out there.

Characteristics of a Gifted Child

Both Derrick and Lakisha have been teachers and Lakisha is still in education and has encountered children of all gifted levels.

Should I Skip My Child?

Think about the whole facet of the child and not just the giftedness. Can you see your child in a class with other children who are much older than themselves? Does your child need the social interaction of children of their own age? Be sure to think of the child as a whole and not just about the skill itself.
