This is typical Oborah, next will be an article about Andrew Ouko's genius then you have to wonder, how does this fake professor suddenly happen to have these bright kids that are gifted ...yet he is in the gifted and talented business? too many coincedences?
The writer of this article JOY WANJA did a shoddy job of writing this article, I don't see other experts or teachers views on thsis whole thing. Just her dad ( a conman) and herself. Is that a complete story? Just a clever way to get your child tested and shell a load of cash by DALC.
So confident, composed, and articulate is the 13-year-old that she has not only learnt to mingle with adults but intimately shares her passion for her pet subject — nutrition.Tracy was identified as a gifted and talented child five years ago and was accelerated from Class Three to Form One.“A psychometric test revealed that my daughter was exceptionally good in nutrition and her knowledge was above that of her age mates,” Prof Humphrey Oborah, her father, told Saturday Nation on Friday.“She would ask lots of questions, was a keen observer and analyst and excelled in her studies with little effort,” Prof Oborah said.“I developed an interest in food and its nutritive value when I was seven,” says Tracy, now a Form Four student at Millennium Academy.Tracy is one of 325 children in East Africa who are part of the African Council for Gifted and Talented Children, an organisation that nurtures and appreciates extraordinary ability.According to Prof Oborah, the children do not necessarily have to be gifted academically only. Dexterity in skills like singing, playing the piano or sports are some of the talents identified.“If you notice a unique skill in your child, nurture it,” he advised parents, guardians, and teachers.However, Prof Oborah said one of the challenges facing learning institutions in the country and region is a system to identify gifted children due to restrictions on access to educational and psychological assessment to determine IQ.
