Coming out of an educational conference it struck me how many sessions emphasized acceleration as the primary tool for supporting gifted students. As a gifted student who had both positive and negative experiences with my education, I have mixed feelings about this. While acceleration can be valuable for many gifted students, focusing on it exclusively can leave out a lot of twice exceptional and under achieving gifted folks, which can have lasting impacts on the experience of gifted adults.

In this episode:

  • Common traits of gifted students and how they may leave out twice exceptional and underachieving students.
  • How my experience both as a student and as a parent have shaped my view on how to support gifted and twice exceptional individuals.
  • Four things I believe are crucial in helping gifted and twice exceptional individuals meet their potential.
