Predicting the Gifted Child

Though an estimated 3 million children in the United States have been identified as intellectually “gifted,” very little is known about them and their developmental needs. In an effort to better understand giftedness, the American Psychological Foundation has awarded Psychology Professor Keith Berg and graduate student Joe McNamara a $75,000 grant to search for ways to identify giftedness at an earlier age.

By testing children from ages five to seven, Berg and McNamara hope to determine whether preschoolers and kindergartners with good executive functioning skills—or the ability to plan, organize and strategize—will later be tagged as gifted children in elementary school.

Psychology graduate student Joe McNamara observes his niece Victoria playing a Tower of London game that tests executive functioning, a possible early predictor of giftedness

Psychology graduate student Joe McNamara observes his niece Victoria playing a Tower of London game that tests executive functioning, a possible early predictor of giftedness.

“Executive functioning is one of the last cognitive abilities to develop and one of the first to go as we age,” Berg says. “The earliest points we can see evidence of it is age three, and you start seeing it decline in the 50s. It’s a very vulnerable kind of ability, but it is a crucial ability for one to be able to do the most complex tasks in life, and is fairly crucial in things that aren’t so complex.”

A skill housed primarily in the frontal lobes of the brain, executive functioning enables humans to plan, sequence, initiate and sustain behavior towards a goal, incorporating feedback and making adjustments along the way. “You use your executive functioning, for example, when you go to the grocery store,” Berg says. “You have your list of things you want but you don’t follow it in order. If the spaghetti sauce is the first thing on your list, but you are standing in the bakery section, you don’t walk away from the bakery goods and get the spaghetti sauce only to have to return to bakery goods.” Berg says executive functioning also comes into play when drivers have to re-plan their trip home at the end of the workday in an effort to avoid a traffic jam.

Disorders such as Tourette’s syndrome, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder have long been associated with executive dysfunction, but until now no research has been done attributing advanced executive functioning skills to the academically gifted. Funded by an American Psychological Foundation grant, a subsidiary of the American Psychological Association, Berg and McNamara are recruiting 100 children from area daycares, schools and the community to participate in a three-year study. Participants will spend an hour with researchers once a year to work on puzzles that examine executive functioning, primarily the Tower of London task, which requires participants to move balls on pegs to match an example pegboard in the minimum number of steps.

“I don’t think there is ever going to be any one task that is going to have a perfect correlation with giftedness because it’s far too complicated to expect that to be true,” Berg says. “But we will have taken a big step if we can find one that is a good predictor—if not a perfect predictor—of giftedness early on.”

Berg and McNamara are looking for five-year-old volunteers for the study. Testing takes less than an hour, and participants get to play computer games and take home stickers and prizes. To sign your child up for the study, contact Joe McNamara at jpm2@ufl.edu or 392-0601, extension 239.
