If your child was gifted when did you start to notice differences?
Could you see it when they where infants?
Did they always seem to be 3-5 months ahead on development especially with problem solving and multi step problems?
If he is gifted how can I help as he gets older? I know that most schools have resources but other sources especially those that focus on more of an early childhood level would be nice.
I'm seriously starting to think that DS is gifted. I know that a lot of parents think that their child is and that it's hard to spot a truly gifted child in infancy(under 12 months is my definition of infancy) but he just seems different. My own parents didn't know that I was above average(in a few areas my learning disabilities still make a few things hard including writing sorry I know I get a little jumbled sometimes) till I taught myself to read when I was 3 and DH's parents weren't impressed until he started doing basic computer programming at 8, so I do know that it's not always obvious but still he just seems ahead on figuring things out.
All answers excepted but I would prefer to avoid the ones from people who don't believe in giftedness and I promise I'm not trying to push him into anything I was just looking for experiences and maybe resources if you have them.
