Many parents are surprised to learn that their bright child’s unique “quirks” are actually well-studied social & emotional behavior patterns that appear across large populations of highly intelligent children. Whether it’s refusing to wear shirts with buttons or tags, overreacting to the slightest criticism, gravitating to play with older children, anxiety about trying something new, or preferring a book to a playdate, many perplexing behaviors are common in this population. Learn what’s normal, what to expect as they grow, and why HiCap school programs are optimal for kids’ social and emotional development, as well as developing their academic talents.
