A six-year-old girl from New Jersey is amazing the world with her intelligence. Her IQ - 138 - corresponds to the level of a genius. For comparison, the highest average for people under 64 years old is 109. The publication told more about the brilliant girl USB Today.
Declan Lopez is a 6-year-old girl interested in art, science, math and geography; She reads at a fourth grade level. She was recently inducted into Mensa, the world's oldest society for highly intelligent people.
Declan attends school in Dover, where most of the teachers, said mother Michelle Lopez, are "wonderful and supportive." time they don’t offer a gifted program until third grade.”
Lopez homeschools her daughter after school to "supplement and stimulate her ongoing learning needs." The two are taking 4th and 5th grade math and reading programs together, and the family is considering enrolling Declan in private schools, where she would have access to a “richer curriculum.”
Who and when first noticed intelligence? Declan
Parents began to notice the girl's intelligence when she was only 18 months old.
“We were driving to the airport and she started counting in Mandarin,” Lopez recalled, noting that it was a very difficult task to keep her daughter smart while still allowing her to be a child.
Declan's parents make sure that she develops harmoniously, so the girl practices karate and football, and studies music theory. The family is considering programming, among other things, but, of course, not all at the same time.
“We try to maintain a healthy and active social life: activities offered by Rockaway Township, playing with her friends, going to the mall (since she loves fashion),” Lopez shared.
Declan is currently showing interest in vlogging.
“We want her to feel strong and creative, so we try any activities that pique her interest. Of course, everything is within reason,” said the girl’s mother.
When asked what she and her 6-year-old genius husband want to be when she grows up, Lopez said her daughter's aspirations are constantly changing: "Declan said she wants to be an astronomer, an actress, a surgeon, a teacher, etc."
There is strong evidence that the youngest son, Maddox, will also be gifted, the mother noted.
