A special kind of need
I am a huge fan of modern family, and so naturally I was intrigued to watch this Ellen video. But this is not a blog about T.V. shows. I simply was surprised to find out that the young actor Nolan Gould is a member of MENSA!
Mensa, the high IQ society, provides a forum for intellectual exchange among its members. There are members in more than 100 countries around the world.
Activities include the exchange of ideas through lectures, discussions, journals, special-interest groups, and local, regional, national and international gatherings; the investigations of members' opinions and attitudes; and assistance to researchers, inside and outside Mensa, in projects dealing with intelligence or Mensa.
This got me thinking about children like Nolan. I have seen children with very high I.Q. labeled as trouble makers or hyperactive because they were simply under stimulated in the classroom. I often thought about this question and I present this to you: What do we have available in Kuwait for children with high intelligence, or what we usually term "gifted children"? Please share any information you may have xx
