There are many types of giftedness.
Keep in mind with giftedness that there are many types, and not all school systems work with them. Not just the intellectual programs but many children are gifted in things like the arts. If your child is particularly passionate about an instrument, singing, drawing or writing you may want to see if your school system has a program for them too! The school usually has criteria that must be met to be involved in these programs, and the process might be lengthy, including things like essays and a portfolio.
