The International Gifted Consortium (IGC), Research Center for the Highly-Profoundly Gifted shares real-life stories, trials and tribulations from the voices of highly and profoundly gifted children, adolescents, young adults, families and beyond - We explore the depths of heightened sensitivity, heightened intensity and heightened awareness found in the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and/or altruistic development of giftedness.
Vanessa Wood continues conversations with Jared, a rising senior at Connecticut College. Every individual needs fitting experiences and educational opportunities to positively grow and develop including our highly-profoundly gifted.
Vanessa Wood dialogs with Jared about the similarities of psychomotor overexcitability and ADHD through his life experiences. For the best understanding, identification and support, Giftedness and overexcitabilities must be considered first or in addition to ADHD or other co-existing behaviors and/or development. Jared, the inspiration for this podcast, is a Philosophy major at Connecticut College. Thank you to Rick Reineke and RRaud.com
