Drawing ability may be linked to intelligence

A child's ability to draw may be linked to his or her future intelligence.

Researchers studied more than 7,000 sets of twins who completed a "draw a child" test and intelligence assessment at age four.

Those who included the most accurate facial and body features in their drawings scored higher on the intelligence testing.

If your child isn't great at drawing, researchers say there's no need to worry. Many other factors contribute to intelligence.
