We all think that we have the smartest child. I guess this mom now has the proof…
A two-year-old has become the youngest ever girl to become a member of a club for the country’s brainy elite.
Georgia Brown has an official genius-rated IQ – Intelligence Quotient – of 152. She can already count to 10, knows her colours and knows the difference between a square and a rectangle.
Compared by her mother to Matilda, the Roald Dahl tale about a gifted girl, Georgia has been described by the UK’s leading expert in intelligent children as the brightest two-year-old she has ever met.
Professor Joan Freeman, a specialist educational psychologist, said the IQ test she conducted was unable to fully map Georgia’s abilities.
Matilda was able to perform tasks that are usually expected of five year olds.
“In one test I asked her to draw a circle and she did it so perfectly. It shows she can physically hold a pen well, but also that she understands the concept of a circle.
“Most adults would struggle to do that. Her circle was near to being perfect.”
Georgia lives with her family in York Crescent, Aldershot in Surrey. Prof Freeman said: “I said to her, ‘What a pretty pink skirt, and you have tights and shoes to match’. She said ‘They’re not pink, they’re purple’.
“Most children go to school aged five and start to learn colours, let alone knowing the difference between pink and purple. I have to keep remind-ing myself that she is only two.”
This sounds exactly like my daughter Emily who is two years old. I thing I should probably get her tested.
