Re: where to start... assessing my child's intelligence?
Sounds like my daughter.
She's been talking in sentences for as long as I can remember, she just turned 2. She can count up to 20. She can spell her name (well Gabby, not Gabrielle yet). She recognizes the numbers. We'll be in the store and she points at signs and hollars out the numbers. She knows her alphabet and recognizes most of the letters. She knows some simple words like "a", "the", "and", "cat", "dog", etc.
I mean I thought she was smart, but I never thought she was gifted...lol. She's my first child too and i'm afraid that if I say anything people will think i'm bragging because all moms think their kids are smart
