莫扎特5岁就会编曲,作家威廉·詹姆斯八岁就学会了八门语言。只有有钱人家的孩子才有条件做天才吗?如何才能发现孩子的惊人才能?天才儿童的这三个特征你有过吗?
How do you spot a child genius? Gifted children tend to share three defining characteristics First, they develop skills at a very young age Mozart began composing music when he was just five years old Second, they are self-starters Srinivasa Ramanujan was constructing complex formulae and theories...
 ...before he had even been taught basic mathematics Third, gifted children can be near-obsessive in their interests For William James Sidis, a writer...
 ...collecting hundreds of streetcar transfers...
 ...was a sideline to learning eight languages by the time he was eight He was accepted at Harvard University at the age of 11 They would all have been good candidates for Mensa...
 ...an international society for people with the highest IQs Its youngest member is just two years old But there can be drawbacks to being so clever  Members of American Mensa are three times more likely...
 ...than the general public to suffer from allergies...
 ...or depression...
 ...and they are almost six times more likely to struggle with anxiety And these are just some of the physical and emotional problems...
 ...that gifted children in particular may face Spotting those children is important...
 ...but many of them are being missed In most programmes for gifted children...
 ...students from poor backgrounds are under-represented In 2015 one Florida school district took the rare step of screening...
 ...all children for entry into its gifted-education scheme Admissions increased by 180% among poor children 130% among Hispanics and 80% among black pupils In other words, to spot a gifted child...
 ...you actually have to look for them...
 ...in all communities, not just the ones with the resources to spot their own The benefits can be huge when those “lost Einsteins’’ are found The Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth...
 ...has been observing 5,000 gifted people since 1972 All of the children had test scores high enough...
 ...to get into university when they were just 13 In adulthood the first 1,650 participants...
 ...went on to publish 85 books...
 ...more than 7,500 articles...
 ...and have collectively secured 681 patents One-third of the group earned a doctorate...
 ...that is 17 times the national average Society, too, can reap the rewards when genius is nurtured The founder of Google...
 ...the “Mozart of maths”...
 ...and Lady Gaga...
 ...were all discovered as gifted children The child geniuses who could transform tomorrow’s world...
 ...are already out there But will we spot them?
