Having a checklist to identify giftedness or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is important for several reasons. First, it can provide parents, teachers, and other caregivers with the information needed to properly assess a child’s individual needs. Second, it can help identify those who may be at risk for developing learning disabilities or behavioral issues. Finally, it can help create an appropriate educational plan for a child who may have special needs or require extra assistance in the classroom.
