SOCIETY THE PONCHATOULA TIMES. JUNE 13. 1985, PAGE FoUR % _ tJ Artisans Wilma Lamp (left) and Dot Shivi, Anniversary Banquet. were on hand for the Artisans&apos; Tenth GROWING CHILD How do you know your child is gifted? How do you know if your child is "gifted?" And if he is. how do you help him develop his talents? "'Giftedness" is expressed in many ways. according to Growing Child. the monthly child development newsletter It is not just academic excellence or artistic ability One child might be gifted in using his hands to make things. Another can be gifted in her ability to understand other people's feelings, or to remember things and events. There are many children whose special gifts go unnoticed because their talent lies in unexpected areas, or because they seem ordinary in other ways It is your challenge, and your responsibility as a parent, to discover your child's special gifts and give him the chance to develop them. How? Children are naturally drawn to activities that help them develop their gifts. But they need encouragement and opportunity. For example, you might notice your child singing along whenever he hears music on the radio or television. Your encouragement, plus some records of his own. might give him a chance to expand his interests and skills. A child also needs to develop basic skills before he can use those skills effectively. For example, he needs to know how to cook before he can combine ingredients in new and interesting ways to invent his own recipes. \\; \\; ** *********************************** **************************** Your child also needs to use her gifts ;  in order to develop them. : - ....
