A two-year-old toddler has an IQ of 146!
This California toddler may just be one of the smartest people in the country. Kashe Quest has tested with an IQ of 146, which is 46 points above the national average and considered 'genius or near-genius' level. This score also puts her in the top 2 percent of the U.S. population, giving her a spot in the prestigious high-IQ society Mensa International. She will be their youngest member.
"We started to notice her memory was really great. She just picked up things really fast and she was really interested in learning. At about 17, 18 months, she had recognized all the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes," said Sukhjit Athwal, Kashe's mother. Now the two-year-old is learning English, Spanish and sign language all at the same time!
"At the end of the day, she's in that toddler stage. So she very much is still a normal two-year-old where we have negotiations, we have tantrums, we have everything and it's different because the way we communicate with her, it has to be different because she's able to understand just a little bit more," said Athwal. Kashe's mother continues, "I think one of the biggest things with me and her daughter and making sure she has a childhood and we don't force anything on her too. We're kind of going at her pace and we want to just make sure that she is youthful for as long as she can be."
