A child from London was discovered to have an IQ of 159. It is an IQ level that is at par with Einstein as recorded by scientists. Another child from US has an IQ of 160 and has started reading when he was two years old. These children are really way more advanced than kids their age. We call them these days as genius.
How do you know if your child could potentially be a genius? There is no other way to find out than observing their actions. You can also send them at a daycare and preschool provider in Forest Hills, New York, the Baby Steps Daycare/Preschool, and you can get a second hand opinion from our teachers about your child’s performance.
Being one of those who are able to spend a lot of time with the kids, we are also the first to notice about their unusual behavior and what these indicators could mean. Here are some of the tell tale signs of a genius kid:
1. They acquire learning skills way too early than other kids
Mensa, an international organization that tests the IQ of children, has created a certain standard to qualify children that are believed to be genius or above average. Their checklist includes:
- Acquiring readings skills as early as two or three years old
- They have a very sharp memory
- They ask a lot of questions just about anything
- Unusual hobby
- They are musical
2. They are more mature than the others
One of wonders of having a gifted child is their ability to be in control of their actions and their moods even at a young age. Even in our own daycare and preschool provider in Forest Hills, New York, at Baby Steps Daycare and Preschool, we have observed how some children can really act more mature than other kids especially when put in a group.
3. They have a more developed problem solving skills
This is usually manifested when you give a child a particular game like chess, scrabble or a difficult puzzle. When they seem to be so engrossed to solving the game or they are really interested to find the answers to it, that may be a good indicator that they have a more advanced IQ compared to younger kids.
Generally, everyone has the potential to be a kid genius but it is not the school that will help you discover that. We are here to support child development and along the way nurture your child’s full potential.
