The unique needs and attributes of gifted children extend beyond merely their accelerated cognitive development. They are divergent from average children in social and emotional arenas as well. Because they have special intellectual, emotional, imaginational, psycho-motor, and sensual energies that need to be understood, respected and sometimes redirected it is essential that school districts have a deep understanding of how these children operate beyond just meeting their intellectual needs. In this course, Dr. Juntune will guide you through the unique social and emotional world of a gifted child and demonstrate how schools, teachers and administrators can best serve these children and provide them with the whole person education that they have a right to.

  7. Rhonda – HUNTSVILLE ISD – TEXAS ONLINE PREP (verified owner)

    I enjoy her stories. They are from so many different perspectives and it makes you think about the gifted kids you had, those that are probably gifted but not identified, and how you have to approach working with them differently.
