Gifted Preschoolers

Mary Anne was perplexed by her preschooler. The child seemed quite precocious at times and Mary Anne wasn’t sure what to do about it. Should the child be tested to see what her true abilities might be? Should Mary Anne be looking at gifted school opportunities? Should she be doing anything special at home?
  • The Frances A. Karnes Center for Gifted Studies at the University of Southern Mississippi has suggestions for parents with questions like those of Mary Anne. At this site, you will find information about characteristics of very young gifted children, appropriate activities that stimulate learning, identification and testing, and preparing your child for school.
  • At Augusta’s Gifted Services, you will find which lists comparing normal and advanced development in very young children as well as a list of activities to do with gifted preschoolers.
Each of the above websites will give you lots of fun ideas for working with your precocious preschooler.
