  • 3 common traits of intelligent children
    Along with a deeper understanding of their world and how it works talented children also frequently have deeper emotions Parents can help children deal with their feelings by openly discussing their emotions and taking them seriously The Davidson Institute for Talent Development suggests using an emotional thermometer to gage how a child is feeling on a scale of 1 to 10 3 Language skills Children who are avid readers and seem to possess an advanced vocabulary show signs of being gifted Language can help them gain more knowledge so effectively communicating with various audiences is important to talented children What parents can do First pay attention to your child s feelings As adults it s easy to write off children s emotions as immature and overreacting but it s important to nurture their sense of self so they can grow into confident adults As children get older it s also valuable to pay attention to their schooling If gifted children are not being challenged enough in class they will quickly become bored causing their grades to suffer and potentially getting them into trouble Gifted Education Digests suggests that kids benefit from spending time with others who are at a similar intelligence level Inquiring into a school s gifted program is an excellent way to make this happen For parents with multiple kids be sure not to make children feel like they are competing Getting distracted by a gifted child s needs can accidentally cause other kids to feel left out and cause a rift between siblings The Davidson Institute suggests showing support for each child s accomplishments and encouraging siblings to participate in the support This helps kids become advocates of each other instead of competitors RELATED ARTICLES Great books for gifted kids Pesticides associated with reduced cognitive development Improve

  • Autism: How is it connected to IQ?
    take traditional timed IQ tests such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children or the Stanford Binet assessment because of the tests structures and focus on societal and cultural knowledge Isabelle Soulieres a researcher from Harvard tested autistic children on both the WISC and Raven s Progressive Matrices an assessment more in line with how their brain processes information and found that they scored much higher on the Raven s test Many of those who are considered low functioning if you give them other intelligence tests you will find hidden potential Soulieres told Scientific American They can solve really complex problems if you give them material that they can optimally process The link between autism genes and IQ Interestingly despite the fact that autistic children don t appear to be any more likely than the general population to have higher IQ scores people who are born with the genes that are associated with autism may be a different story A study published in Molecular Psychology researched nearly 10 000 individuals in Scotland and discovered that those who had more of the genetic variations that have been linked with autism but who don t have the disorder are more likely to score better on cognitive assessments Researchers aren t sure why this is but say that it s an interesting development for research regarding the link between IQ and autism Links between autism and better cognitive function have been suspected and are widely implied by the well known Silicon Valley syndrome and films such as Rain Man Nick Martin co author of the study said in a statement The link between autism IQ and anxiety Anxiety in social situations is a commonly cited symptom of some autism disorders including Asperger syndrome Research has found that autistic children who do have above

  • Is it possible to predict babies' IQ scores?
    grain of salt A psychology professor from the University of London worked with toy company Fisher Price for instance to develop an assessment for babies between 6 and 12 months old The test contains 10 questions including Can your child drop a toy on purpose or Does your child do the action for one song like Pat a cake Early development It s widely believed that babies who develop cognitive capabilities earlier than average will likely have higher IQ scores later on British Mensa consultant Lyn Kendall told BBC News that things like exhibiting an unusually good memory developing reading skills early and having an affinity for music or musical instruments can all predict high IQ scores in babies Attention to novelty study A study published in the scientific journal Intelligence in 2007 looked at how a baby s attention span may indicate high intelligence later in life and found interesting results Though most people may think that longer attention spans would be a sign of higher intelligence researchers actually discovered that babies between 6 and 12 months old had a higher IQ score at age 8 if they stopped paying attention to pictures but only if they were pictures the babies had already seen before The study s researchers equated their lack of attention to pictures whose novelty had worn off to the babies being able to process information better Whether you re simply curious about how smart your baby is or want to more accurately predict his or her IQ score these cues may give you some idea of his or her intelligence However for more precise results it s best to wait until your child has turned 4 years old when he or she will be able to take a more accurate IQ test RELATED ARTICLES Great
