Appreciating the intensities of gifted individuals

Above all other attributes, gifted children, teens and adults share a common characteristic: intensity. These intensities may relate to academics, where nothing below straight-As is acceptable; emotions, where extreme highs and lows leave no room for moderation; and everyday life, where relationships are deeper, disappointment is stronger, and even simple questions have complex answers.  In this session, these and other intensities will be addressed, as will ways that educators and parents can learn to appreciate them for the assets they are instead of the deficiencies that many make them out to be.

Dr. James (Jim) Delisle has taught gifted children and those who work on their behalf for more than 39 years.  Jim retired from Kent State University in 2008 after 25 years of service there as a Distinguished Professor of special education.  For the past five years, Jim has worked part-time with highly-gifted 9th and 10th graders at the Scholars' Academy in Conway, South Carolina. He is the author of more than 250 articles and 19 books.

N.B. Op 13 oktober zal Jim tijdens de post-conference ook ingaan op deze thematiek. De post-conference biedt verdieping en uitwisseling tussen specialisten vanuit verschillende disciplines. Deze dag is bedoeld voor professionals met ruime expertise en ervaring op het gebied van de begeleiding van begaafde kinderen en (jong) volwassenen.
