Why is Advocating for my Gifted Child Important?

Originally posted on Incredible Journey of Giftedness:
I remember seeing a tweet on Twitter from a gifted adult and she said, ‘I wish my parents hadn’t asked me why I couldn’t just be normal’ repeatedly as I grew up. This tweet hit home, because…

Raising a Gifted Child and the Perception of Hothousing

Madison loves learning. Madison learns things very quickly that she is interested in. Madison loves seeing her progress and is very competitive. This does not equal me hothousing her. It equals me providing opportunities for her to learn, how she wants to learn. I…

The Love of Learning With Homeschooling

Jeff just finished reading The Story of the World Volume One to Madison this evening. Volume One is Ancient Times. Next, they will move on to Volume Two, which is the Middle Ages. I try my best to keep up with the Homeschool Facebook…

Misdiagnosing Gifted Children With ADHD

I have heard of many teachers who suggest parents of gifted children should have their child tested for ADHD. I challenge every teacher to watch this video and make sure they are very well informed before suggesting a gifted child be tested. It could…

The Perks of Homeschooling and the Stereotype of Socialization Issues

My Real Gift

Technically speaking, I am profoundly gifted. My IQ is several standard deviations, not just above the norm, but beyond the “gifted” cut-off as well. I am also autistic, falling under the category of high-functioning Asperger’s syndrome and including…

The Gifted Child and Sensory Overload- When is it Too Much?

I will admit I saw the articles pass by on how to handle the holidays with a gifted child and I didn’t read them. Hindsight is always 20/20 and I tend to learn the hard way. We had a very busy November and December…
