If you have a gifted child, your biggest academic concern may be to ensure that your child is properly stimulated in school. Many gifted and talented programs offer more work or a faster pace. For most gifted children, these programs are more than sufficient, particularly when offered in academically competitive schools and the child participates in a range of extracurricular activities. When school programs do not meet all your gifted child’s needs, Mindprint offers an excellent variety of appropriate materials to supplement classroom work.

Profoundly gifted children, comprising less than 0.5% of the population, are academically well beyond even their gifted peers. For these children, the school’s gifted programs are often unequipped to provide the stimulation and challenge these students need to thrive. It is not uncommon for these children to grow bored, disengaged or develop behavioral problems as a coping mechanism. Schools encounter profoundly gifted children so infrequently that they may not realize the signs of a child struggling to cope. They could misinterpret these behaviors as defiance, disobedience, or a lack of great potential. If you believe your child may not be receiving the necessary academic stimulation, we encourage you to explore these resources designed to serve gifted children.
