Presenter: Lori Comallie-Caplan Understanding the Social Emotional Dimensions of the Gifted and the Impact of Asynchrony Social and emotional needs of gifted children is a hot topic right now; and for good reason. Our gifted students are more than just little (or big!) brains. They require nurturing and development of both their hearts and their minds. So what do we do when that social/emotional development doesn’t keep pace with the cognitive development? This workshop will help professionals working with the gifted to understand the impact of the unique neurology of the gifted brain. It will address intensity, sensitivity, idealism and perfectionism of the gifted as well as asynchronous development. Strategies for nurturing the social emotional needs of the gifted will be shared and discussed.
