An introduction to many of the key questions and answers that people search for when they are first introduced to the construct of giftedness, including identification, what it means for education, friendships, the future, and available support.
We examine differences between enrichment and acceleration, hidden gifted, complexities for students with ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome, the importance of cultural understanding; and strategies to support your gifted person –at home, school, and at work.
We examine the history of IQ testing, whether intelligence is fixed, the Flynn Effect, and how understanding elements of neuroscience may help you support a gifted person at school, home, or work.
Gifted people may experience heightened sensitivities. We examine these including, how they relate to the Overexcitabilities, how these in turn fit with Dąbrowski’s Theory of Positive Disintegration; and what this might mean for your gifted person.
As a result of asynchronous development, the social and emotional needs of gifted people may need some special consideration, and once at peace with ‘giftedness’, what role in the world might our gifted people play?
