A California toddler is the youngest American to join Mensa -- the oldest IQ society in the world.

加州的一名幼童成为加入门萨俱乐部年纪最小的美国人。门萨俱乐部是世界上最古老的高智商协会。

 

Kashe Quest, now 3, joined the American branch of the organization on March 29, 2021, at age 2 with an IQ of 146, making her the youngest American member, Mensa confirmed to "Good Morning America."

门萨俱乐部向《早安美国》证实,现年3岁的卡什·奎斯特于2021年3月29日加入门萨俱乐部美国分会,当时年仅两岁的她智商高达146,这使她成为门萨俱乐部最年轻的美国会员。

 

"By 18 months, she had mastered pretty much the alphabet, numbers, colors, shapes ... and then that's when we started noticing this is pretty advanced for her age," Sukhjit Athwal, Kashe's mom, told "GMA." "So we spoke with the pediatrician and she was like, 'Just continue documenting.'"

卡什的母亲苏克吉特·阿斯瓦尔告诉《早安美国》说:“卡什1岁半就已经掌握了字母表、数字、颜色、形状等知识,从那时起我们开始注意到她的智力发育很超前。我们和儿科医生交流了这一情况,医生的意见是:继续密切关注。”

 

With a background in child education, Athwal has learning resources readily available around her family's home, but never pushed Kashe in any particular direction.

拥有幼儿教育背景的阿斯瓦尔在家中有很多现成的学习资源,但是她从未给卡什设定特别的学习方向。

 

"The way we've implemented her learning is we've never really forced her to sit down and do anything -- it was out of her natural curiosity," she said.

她说:“我们从未强迫她坐下来做任何事情,她学习都是出自天然的好奇心。”

 

According to her parents, Kashe memorized the 50 states by shape and location and could name all of the elements on the periodic table by the time she was 2 years old.

据卡什的父母称,卡什在两岁时就能记住美国50个州的形状和地理位置,还能背出元素周期表上的所有元素。

 

"That's when we were encouraged to explore our options in terms of getting her tested," Athwal said. "It's pretty amazing what she's doing at this point in time and how fast she's grasping concepts."

阿斯瓦尔说:“这时候有人鼓励我们带她去做个测试。她在这个年龄段所做的事以及掌握概念的速度太令人惊讶了。”

To qualify for Mensa membership, applicants must take an approved intelligence test and score at or above the 98th percentile. "It was working on receptive memory, cognitive skills and logical reasoning," Athwal said.

想要进入门萨俱乐部,申请者必须接受正规的智力测试并答对至少98%的题目。阿斯瓦尔说:“门萨俱乐部测试了她的接受性记忆力、认知技能和逻辑推理能力。”

 

Kashe's parents place high importance on making sure they give their daughter the necessary tools she needs to thrive. To that end, Athwal founded the Modern Schoolhouse for children from 6 weeks to age 5, which opened in October 2020.

卡什的父母非常重视给女儿提供成长发育所需的必要工具。为此,阿斯瓦尔在2020年10月开办了一所名为现代儿童校舍的幼儿园,接收6周到5岁大的孩子。

 

The preschool aims to mimic a natural home environment so children feel safe and comfortable while learning in the space, she said. In addition to sensory stimulation and play time, students learn things like Spanish, sign language, how to use various technology and yoga.

这所幼儿园旨在模拟天然的家庭环境,让孩子们在这里学习的同时感到安全舒适。除了感官刺激和游戏时间,学生们会学习西班牙语、手语、瑜伽等技能,以及如何运用各种科技。

 

One of the things they've learned while raising Kashe, Athwal said, is how to communicate and be intentional with their words effectively.

阿斯瓦尔说,他们在抚养卡什的过程中学到的一个东西就是如何有效地沟通以及有意地运用自己的语言。

 

"Aside from her high IQ, she understands emotion, she understands context and the way we communicate," she said. "If we say something incorrectly she'll be like, 'No that's not what you said,' or, 'That's not what it is.' She's always correcting us."

她说:“除了拥有高智商,卡什能理解感情、语境以及我们沟通的方式。如果我们说错了什么,她会说:‘你刚才不是这么说的’或‘你说的不对’。她总是会纠正我们。”

 

While they encourage Kashe's development and let her set the pace for what she wants to do, her parents also make sure to keep her balanced. Kashe's interests include "Frozen," "Paw Patrol," watermelon, swimming, messy paint and science experiments.

在鼓励卡什按照自己的节奏自由成长的同时,卡什的父母也确保她在各方面平衡发展。卡什对《冰雪奇缘》、《汪汪队立大功》、西瓜、游泳、彩绘涂鸦和科学实验都很感兴趣。

 

"Being a child is most important," her mom said. "We want to keep her youthful as long as we can. Socialization and her emotional growth are the most important things for us."

卡什的母亲说:“最重要的是让她好好做个孩子。我们希望尽可能长久地让她保持一颗年轻的心。她的社会化和情感发展对我们来说是最重要的。”
