Video: Gifted and talented children: signs and identification

1-15 years

In this video, parents of gifted children talk about noticing early signs like a big vocabulary, advanced use of language or musical talent. They talk about having mixed feelings and working out what it means for their child’s future. An educational psychologist says it can help to get a formal assessment when a gifted child is approaching school age, to help the school plan for your child’s educational needs.
