A great gift.  Have you noticed that your child is particularly idealistic or a perfectionist? Does he or she find certain subjects or concepts very simple while his or her peers seem to struggle? If the answer is “yes,” your child may be eligible for Gifted and Talented (GT) classes. GT students are children or youth who perform at (or exhibit potential for performing at) an extraordinarily high level of achievement. They usually excel in one or more of the following areas: •	Intelligence •	Creative Thinking •	Visual/Performing Arts •	Leadership •	Specific Academic Ability Because GT students usually become bored with their grade-level work, most schools place these bright youth in advanced programs so they can fulfill their academic potential. If your school district has a waiting list for advanced-placement testing, consider MindWorks Testing to get your child in the right class for their capabilities.
