Every child has special gifts and talents.....
*"The child who does well in school, gets good grades, wins awards, and "performs" beyond the norms for his or her age, is considered talented..."

*"....Like cheetahs, highly gifted children can be easy to identify. If a child teaches herself Greek at age five, reads at the eighth grade level at age six or does algebra in second grade we can safely assume that child is a highly gifted child."

* From "Is It a Cheetah?"
