Ways in which you can improve your child’s IQ in Richmond, Texas

Posted on 08-25-2014


Though there are many different variables which impact intelligence, a person’s IQ remains the most common method of measuring intelligence. You can improve your preschool child’s IQ using different techniques.

Early nutrition

Providing your child with a balanced diet from birth is essential to proper brain development and intelligence. Studies have shown that breast milk is one of the single most important factors that affects brain development in infancy. This is largely due to the fact that there are about 380 nutrients found in breast milk that are not present in commercial formulas.

Protection from toxins – both during and after pregnancy

When pregnant, it is important that you do not ingest any harmful toxins. These toxins can have potentially catastrophic effects on the overall development of your child. Substances like mercury, found in seafood such as tilefish, swordfish and king mackerel, have been shown to reduce brain development and hamper IQ scores.

Encourage creativity

Encouraging creativity in your child can help improve both types of IQ scores, the traditional one that measures intelligence and a newer one, the imagination quotient. New research shows that the imagination quotient may have a more significant bearing on your child’s academic success. Encouraging free play and other creative activities are as vital as more formal learning activities in your child’s early years.

Another method to enhance your child's IQ is to create a stimulating home environment. Here are some ideas:

  • Use expressive facial gestures while talking to your child to stimulate his or her brain
  • Read with your child to help teach language skills
  • Have your child socialize with other children
  • Learning sign language can help your child learn skills such as thinking and analyzing
