From the moment you took her home from the hospital, you thought your daughter was extra special, perhaps even brilliant and talented. But is she "gifted?"

To be considered "gifted," a child must show "the potential to perform at high levels of accomplishment when compared to same-age peers," said Jane Clarenbach, director of public education at the National Association for Gifted Children.

That means she reaches milestones ahead of her peers, has an extensive vocabulary, has an excellent memory, is relentlessly curious and doesn't stop asking questions, among other traits. She may also develop a particular passion or talent, said Paula Motte, senior editor at BabyCenter.com, the go-to global resource for moms.
