Child Genius

Gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall

Bringing up a gifted child is exciting but it’s rarely easy. And the children themselves can struggle to fit in with a society that doesn’t understand them and makes them feel “different”.

Two events coming up over the next few weeks aim to help both parents and children, both led by Mensa’s gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall and hosted by Mensa’s hub school, the Westwood Academy in Coventry.

The programme that puts extraordinary children in the spotlight is now looking for children aged 8-12 (and their families) to take part in the fourth series. 

Initial applications are open but there is no commitment to take part at this stage, until families feel fully informed and happy to proceed. There will be a series of conversations with all parents across the selection process.
