According to the National Association for Gifted Children "Giftedness, intelligence, and talent are fluid concepts and may look different in different contexts and cultures. Even within schools you will find a range of beliefs about the word "gifted," which has become a term with multiple meanings and much nuance.  


Gifted children may develop asynchronously: their minds are often ahead of their physical growth, and specific cognitive and social-emotional functions can develop unevenly. Some gifted children with exceptional aptitude may not demonstrate outstanding levels of achievement due to environmental circumstances such as limited opportunities to learn as a result of poverty, discrimination, or cultural barriers; due to physical or learning disabilities; or due to motivational or emotional problems. This dichotomy between potential for and demonstrated achievement has implications for schools as they design programs and services for gifted students."


This workshop will explore definitions of "giftedness", cultural differences, and the role(s) of social workers.


Learning Objectives:

1. Learn & understand the definition of gifted & talented.

2. Learn the challenges people identified as gifted & talented & those close to them face.

3. Understand the emotional and psychological issues around the gifted & talented identity.


Presenter: Dr. Daniel Rosenbaum, LMSW
