Children above 180 iq standford-binet origin and development (classics in child development) - Children Above 180 IQ (Stanford-Binet): Origin and Development



Societies see their future in terms of the contributions of their talented members because a nation's prosperity is dependent upon its utilisation of the full range of available human abilities. All socio-cultural groups foster development of a range of valued talents and abilities according to their needs and belief systems.

A large body of research and a resulting literature developed late last century around one key concept usually labelled 'giftedness', along with all of the related concepts and topics such as intelligence, talent, potential, thinking, creativity, identification, underachievement, educational programs and support services.

The 20th century saw the greatest developments in this field. Early studies demonstrated that the gifted were not socially or emotionally bereft and are often successful throughout their lives (eg: Terman and Hollingworth, 1925 on).

Your child takes an IQ test and you get the score back. You learn that your child, with an IQ score of 150, falls into the highly gifted range. What does that mean? Before you can understand what it means for a child to be highly gifted (or moderately gifted, or profoundly gifted), you need to understand what IQ scores represent.

An IQ score is an Intelligence Quotient . This is a measure of intelligence , primarily of a person's reasoning ability.

If we took everyone's IQ scores and plotted them, we would see them distributed in a normal bell curve. That means that most scores would fall somewhere in the center of that bell curve. The score in the absolute center of the bell curve is 100 and that is where we would expect most scores to fall, or where they will cluster.
