My daughter just turned 6, so up until now I’ve always tried to treat September 11 like any other day. However this year, I don’t know if that’s even possible. Since it’s the tenth anniversary of the attacks, the media has decided that it’s all 9/11, all the time, regardless of how we feel about it. As parents, we should be the ones deciding when and how our kids learn about 9/11, but the fact is even young children may hear about it, no matter how much we try to protect them.

http://www.diagnostic-learning.com/Who is the gifted learner? Often the I.Q. score is used as the projection to measure I.Q. If this is the sole judgment of I.Q, then one may consult the Stanford-Binet Form LM , the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, or the Silverman & Kearney tests.

Highly and profoundly gifted children may be defined as those who score above the third or fourth standard deviation on IQ test, or who are prodigies in a particular domain. (Webb, Meckstroth, & Tolan) The State of Texas definition of the gifted and talented student states: The phrase gifted and talented student means a child or youth who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who:•    Exhibits high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area;•    Possess an unusual capacity for leadership; or•    Excels in a specific academic field - 74th legislature of the State of Texas, Chapter 29, Subchapter d.
