Children With High Intellectual Potential
Children with High Intellectual Potential have an Intellectual Quotient higher than 115. They like self-focused activities and are always eager to know/learn more. They can be annoyed by routine and repetitive activities especially when these activities seem to be easy for them. Children are very smart, reactive, and easily build relationships with others.
Children with High Intellectual Potential may need the intervention of some specialists like psychologists or psychomotor therapists who can help them to overcome their difficulties (emotions, motor functions). At CEMEDIPP-Dubai, the psychologist is the professional qualified for assessing the children presenting high intellectual potential.
