To Everyone Here... Your Child May Be Gifted!
by Hopefully Helpful
Many gifted children have sensory issues, ADHD, slight Autism, social issues (getting along well with older kids not with peers) and other behavioral/developmental concerns. Check out the gifted children's website in USA by searching hoagiesgifted or search giftedchildren.
I thought my child was odd, different, socially inept but he turned out to be gifted in maths and science. If you think your child is gifted after searching for the above sites, then have them assessed by an Education Psychologist recommended on the gifted website as some Ed Psychs don't have a background in assessing giftedness. Giftedness is usually in one or two areas only, so just because they are bad at language doesn't mean they can't be gifted. Gifted can be any one of the following areas: maths/science/music/art/socially/language/memory/creative imagination etc.
There are lots of fun places for gifted kids/parents to interact including gifted clubs and education where they go to an advanced school for one day per week, known as One Day School, alongside their normal school. Chat to the parents on the forums and you will discover your unusual child is quite normal for a gifted child.
