By unleashing the capabilities of every student, regardless of their background, we not only redefine the concept of giftedness but also enhance the educational journey for each individual we support.

Presentation Topics

Gifted 101

By changing our perspective and improving identification processes, we can find and support these high-achieving students, benefiting all individuals we serve. "All means all" emphasizes the importance of equal opportunities for every student.

Gifted individuals, often misunderstood, showcase their talents and challenges in diverse ways, presenting a tapestry of abilities that can be both positive and complex. This session unveils the emerging trend of students exhibiting dual exceptionalities, where giftedness intersects with conditions like ADHD, autism, and sensory processing disorders.

Underserved Populations

Demographic information and research highlight an imbalance in the identification of black and brown students in gifted and high-achieving environments. Changing the lens through which we view giftedness and examining our identification processes lets us find and identify those high-achieving students who have been lost in the shadows, changing not only their trajectory but that of all those we serve. All means all.

Summer did a great job explaining the difficulties of identifying students who are gifted especially among the minority groups. I loved the Venn Diagram showing kids w/ autism, ADHD & Gifted and how much these areas overlapped each other. This really got me thinking of students that I have had
Unbelievably charismatic and passionate. I immediately reached out to my resource teacher (during class sorry!) to ask all the questions about gifted student's in our building and how that process looks in our small private school setting.

I feel like I'm coming away with a better understanding of giftedness in general. I appreciate your openness, flexibility, and willingness to adjust based on what we wanted to know.

You did a great job showing how and why different cultures may not get identified as gifted. I also love hearing about how students with other exceptionalities can be gifted even when their diagnosis might over shadow them being gifted.

You were very well prepared and were aware of the technology differences of the participants.
