How to know if your kid is a genius

Early speech

Early speech with complete sentences may be an indicator of giftedness.

If your child began speaking earlier than most kids, he or she may be gifted. By speaking, we don’t mean just “goo-goos” and “gah-gahs” either; early speech that is marked by the use of advanced phrases and complete sentences is common in gifted children.

  2. I have twin grandsons that are nine years old. Ever since they were a year and a half till now have been very difficult to raise because of their intelligence level. They are two of six children and are beyond gifted. Extremely intelligent but then yet cannot write legibly. Are having problems in school because of writing, because they are perfectionist cannot even put down in words what they are thinking! Very excruciating to raise children like this! Genius children with disabilities that come along with that! Reading constantly and even bringing the dictionary with them wherever they go.. Where and how can you get help for these little boys?! They have tried having them type also and they just continue to eat race because they are unhappy with what they put down! Please help!
