Navigating Family Life When Gifted Traits Collide.

Giftedness comes with intensities, high needs, and special needs. Activities and moments other families take for granted can become a planning nightmare when a gifted child, or two, is involved. Conflicting needs can lead to strained relationships between siblings and parents. How can families manage the various needs giftedness brings to the table, while creating a closer family, and maybe even while having fun? Learn from the GHF Bloggers who have managed to walk this path and come out stronger and happier.

Adapting Lesson Plans to Twice-Exceptional Children

"Twice-exceptional children often perform well during early elementary school, but as the coursework increases they begin to struggle. Recognizing a twice-exceptional student can be difficult, because their giftedness often compensates for their weaker areas, which also makes teaching this demographic more difficult. Educators need to focus on the giftedness and special needs equally so these children will succeed."

Is Your Young Child Gifted?

Gifted children do not always show their potential early on, but many do and often their parents are completely unprepared for how to handle the little bundle of energy that they are responsible for. Many people think of giftedness as something that implies easy parenting and "straight As" in the classroom. In fact, that is often far from the truth. Gifted children do, indeed, have high potential, but they also come in a complicated package that includes different social and emotional needs in addition to an entirely different way of thinking, in some cases.

"Generally, people don’t expect bullying from adults—yet it does occur and can even come in disguise from a trusted colleague or someone considered a friend. Those who stand out as quirky or different, such as gifted or highly sensitive people, may be more vulnerable than most."
