I have read through some of the posts in this community, out of curiosity relating to my son, and I have realized that although he seems advanced, I am not sure I should be looking into the label of gifted at this point. I was curious if everyone's kids started out as talking 6 month olds and reading 1 year olds, or if some later developed the signs of being gifted.
I am not concerned with whether or not my children are, as of yet, but I was looking into it after some behaviors my son has shown that sparked my curiosity in the area. It just got me wondering if there are children who are gifted, very gifted, and extremely gifted? How and when do parents/doctors/teachers/etc start trying to determine whether a child is?
Thanks for your time and answers in advance. :)
