southernm Posted January 10, 2012 Share Posted January 10, 2012 Can a child be gifted in areas of logic, vocab, critical thinking, and comprehension but not in basic areas like reading and math? DS who is almost 7 has always had a more advanced view of the world and really excels in the areas listed above. He is flying through logic countdown and uses vocabulary that is not typical of a first grader. However, he is an emergent reader who reads way better than he gives himself credit for and seems to think that having to sound out a word equates to failure. In math he does well except when we first started math facts he didn't seem to trust himself to memorize them so computed everything! His fine motor skills are very behind as well. I'm just trying to figure this kid out! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
