Question and Answers


questionI think my child is gifted. How do I know for sure?

Answer Expert Answer

Without academic indicators, educators, let alone parents, find it difficult to determine if a child is gifted. Even tests such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC), a roughly two-hour oral test, don't always accurately reflect giftedness. However, schools that offer gifted programs do use tests and various assessments of intellectual, behavioural and other factors, so that's the best place to start.
