Summary

This brief paper offers guidelines on recognizing giftedness in young children based on a study of the developmental characteristics of 77 gifted and average children as reported in parent questionnaires. The questionnaire asked parents to describe their children's development during the first 36 months. Major findings indicated that: parents of average children saw their children's development differently than did parents of gifted children; parents of the gifted tended to underestimate their children's abilities rather than to overestimate them; the two groups had similar socioeconomic backgrounds; there were few differences in physical development between the two groups; but there were major differences in intellectual, imaginational, and social development, as well as in talents and certain personality traits. Tables present questionnaire data which compare gifted and average children on general characteristics, skills, interests, and personality/social traits. (DB)
