Homeschooling my oldest has always been a curious mix of interests and intellect. What I have learned along the way is this is simply the nature of homeschooling a profoundly gifted child. This is a unique and sometimes, complicated journey and one that I am happy to share with you today.
Is Your Homeschooled Child Profoundly Gifted?
One of the questions I am most often asked is, “How do I know if my child is profoundly gifted?”
In this episode, I share many of the qualities that typically present in profoundly gifted children. Some of the most common include:
- learning basic skills quickly and with little practice.
- constructing and handling abstractions easily.
- picking up nonverbal cues and drawing inferences that are tough for children their age to see.
- taking little for granted, preferring to know the ‘”hows” and “whys.”
- wildly eclectic and intensely focused on their interests.
