No It wasn't meant to come accross rude, I apologize if it did. Yes it was supposed to say that I "am not" oops, that is what I get for typing at 7:30 in the morning. By gifted I mean....well she shows many traights of being gifted. She has been talking since before one, she is now 2 and a half, and has the vocabulary of a four year old. She says things like "Let's sit down and have a conversation." She recognizes all primary and secondary colors. She has her address, phone number, and birthday memorized. SHe knows her full name, mine, her Grandfathers and her Grandmothers. She memorizes books. She is beginning to comprehend time. She can give me directions on how to get to the zoo from our house, or how to get to church, she tells me street names to take and what direction to take them (turn left on Garrison to Highway 6 to Indiana to get to church). She learns very quickly, when I tell her something new she picks it up within three lessons. She has an excellent memory, almost photographic. At 18 months old she remembered her first birthday party. Her energy is NON STOP, she goes and goes and goes from 7:30 in the morning till 10 or 11 at night. She has a very active imagination, one that runs wild, she is a princess, she is Captain Hook, Christopher Robin, and she doesn't just pretend to be these people, for the time being she is this person. You have to call her by that name in order to get her attention, she has to dress like them, she talks in accents like they talk, she emphasis her speach the way she hears them speak. She is perfectionistic. Her life and the schedule she leads has to be the exact same every day or it throws her off. At 2 and a half she is recognizing letters, and the sounds that they make. She says things like c is for cat and m is for mommy, using the sounds that the letters make, not the actual letter it self. She has a huge reperitoire (sp) of songs memorized. From "I have Confidence" from the Sound Of Music to "Angels We Have Hear On High" to "We Three Kings" to everyday toddler tunes. She tells jokes, she questions everything that I tell her, and then seems to actually get it. I could go on and on. I just was hoping that some one out there would know of a support group or a web site that deals with kids like this. Or has discovered a school that works well with kids like this.
