W: Why is it that some children perform much better than others at school?
W: The so-called IQ test?
M: Yes. (2)_______________________.This is very unfortunate.A child with an average IQ may turn out to be successful when he grows up.
W: What you're saying is that some children have abilities that are not easy to measure,that aren't appreciated.
M: Precisely.And if these skills are not spotted sufficiently early,they cannot be developed.That's why, in my view, there are so many unhappy adults in this world.They are not doing the things they are best at.
W: I see.
M: But at school, only those children who are good with words and numbers will probably do well in school examinations.
W: Right. Is there anything a parent can do to help in this case?
M: Yes. (3)_______________________.
