Supporting Children

RESEARCH AND EXPERIENCE TELLS US THAT CERTAIN CHARACTERISTICS ARE CONSISTENTLY ACKNOWLEDGED BY PARENTS WHEN DISCUSSING THEIR CHILD.

These cognitive and behavioural traits form the basis of many a checklist used to assist in identifying children of high potential. Please note that most children will not demonstrate all of these characteristics, with some perhaps only showing two or three. A checklist however, can be helpful in determining whether families want to continue the identification process.

Some of the qualities often featured in checklists include:

  • Excellent memory
  • Advanced vocabulary
  • Quick recall of information
  • Intense curiosity and concentration when interest is captured
  • Comfortable in the company of older children and/or adults
  • Feels more deeply than same-age peers, empathetic towards others
  • Advanced sense of humour

The CHIP Centre can help educators to understand the special educational needs of CHIP kids, as well as the difficulties that arise due to the altered internal development timetable which all CHIP experience.
