My DS has 200 words at 24 months old. Does that make him gifted? Serious question?

Giftedness is something that includes IQ which cannot be accurately tested this young. Is he bright? Yes. Probably ahead of the curve.

I don't get why we're so intent on labeling children this young. My kids are smart, very smart, but I wouldn't want to label them at 2 years old.

I think there is such a big arch on how these little ones develop that giftedness can't be measured in one area.
