Characteristics of Gifted Preschool Children.
Lupkowski, Ann E.
To identify gifted preschool children, parents and teachers need to be aware of some of the characteristics that these children possess. Gifted preschool children may have verbal and mathematical abilities that are advanced beyond their years, show creativity and imagination, and have an excellent memory. They exhibit a high level of curiosity, showing an interest in a variety of topics and possibly an intense interest in one area. In addition, young gifted children are capable of abstract thinking, and showing advanced reasoning and insight abilities. (Author)
