Gifted, creative and highly sensitive children

In this TEDx talk, Heidi Hass Gable relates that being “gifted” often feels far from a good thing, especially when you’re the one living it. And yet the myth persists that “gifted” is an elitist and privileged label in education. That “those kids” will be fine without any extra programs or supports. In reality, many of our most vulnerable learners are those “gifted” kids who know they just don’t “fit it.” Heidi looks at being gifted from a student’s (and mother’s) perspective, and proposes ideas to make education better for everyone.
