Many students struggle in the classroom. Some have learning disabilities, while others are simply bored by the material they are being taught. Occasionally, these pupils are unengaged due to the fact that they are actually gifted children.
According to the National Association for Gifted Children, the needs of gifted students are often overlooked.
Keenan Lyon, who is currently enrolled in Canada’s Carleton University at just 16 years of age, is one student who found it hard to stay interested in what he was expected to learn in the fifth grade, the Ottawa Citizen reported.
During math class, Lyon would sit in the back of the room reading a physics book, rather than focusing on what his instructor was teaching, the news source stated.
After completing his studies at Carleton, Lyon plans to pursue a master’s degree in nanotechnology at the University of Waterloo and earn his PhD by the time he is 20 years old, according to the news source.
Parents who want to make sure their children are receiving an education that will keep them engaged may want to have them take a kids IQ test to verify their intelligence quotient.
