Highly gifted children tend to be those who demonstrate
asynchronous development. Due to their high cognitive abilities and high
intensities they experience and relate to the world in unique ways. These
children are often found as a result of extremely high scores on an
individually scored IQ tests, generally above the 140 IQ range. Others may be
prodigies in areas such as math, science, language and/or the arts. Profoundly
gifted children can score in excess of 170 IQ.
Highly gifted children demonstrate characteristics such as the
extreme need to:
at a much faster pace
material to a much greater depth
incredible intensity in energy, imagination,intellectual prowess,
sensitivity, and emotion which are not typical in the general population.
The child of 160+ is as different from the child of 130 IQ as
that child is different from the child of average ability. Current research
suggests that there may be higher incidence of children in this high range than
previously thought. Due to their unique characteristics, these children are
particularly vulnerable. Highly gifted children need a specialized advocacy
because very little has been done to develop appropriate curriculum and
non-traditional options for these children.
