#LTW: #Gifted Children and Highly Sensitivity


Welcome back to Lighting the Way: Teaching the Gifted Child. Teaching gifted children and adults can sometimes be harder than teaching a normal population of students because you are not only dealing with a high intellect but also the various other ailments or disorders the student brings to your classroom. It is not uncommon for a gifted student to have other disorders or ailments. Oftentimes, gifted students are often misunderstood and/or misdiagnosed because of their unique social/emotional needs.

Many time a gifted child and adult will struggle in the world because the educational system doesn't always know what to do with their gifted population. Many people believe gifted children and adults will be ok if they do not receive any additional support. But that is contrary to the reality of being gifted.
