Child Genius: The Early Years from database Films on Demand

Child Genius: The Early Years (75:00)

A child prodigy usually displays high intelligence very early in life. But what makes such a child exceptional? Is it simply his or her IQ, or are other, less definable factors involved? This program enters the lives of several child prodigies, documenting their early growth and development as well as their family lives. Three-year-old Mikhail is the youngest-ever member of Mensa, able to multiply five-figure numbers before most kids can count to 10. Michael was reading Shakespeare and learning Mandarin when he was five—now he’s one of Britain’s youngest published authors. Meanwhile, as Aimee’s astonishing musical talents blossom, she struggles to relate to her “average” parents. (75 minutes)
