"The Unique Inner Lives
of Gifted Children"

Thursday, Nov. 3, 2022, at 7 p.m.

FREE! Space is limited -- RSVP required 

Growing up gifted is more than learning new ideas more quickly or remembering things more easily. The intellectual, academic, social and emotional development of gifted children is out of sync. They often understand things before they are emotionally ready to deal with them. They may have a strong sense of ethics and justice, and be frustrated when the world doesn’t work as they think it should. And as a parent or teacher, it can be hard to set developmentally appropriate expectations for kids who can talk like they are much older than they really are. Dr. Silverman will explore the inner lives of gifted children with us so that we can better understand our gifted children and know how to support them.

This presentation is important for all parents and educators of gifted children. Understanding more about how your child is growing and developing will allow you to better support your child both at school and at home.

Dr. Linda Silverman, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and the founder and director of the Institute for the Study of Advanced Development and its subsidiary, the Gifted Development Center in Westminster, Colorado. With more than 40 years of clinical work and research, Dr. Silverman is an international leader in the field of child-centered gifted education.
