Supporting the Social Development of Gifted Kids – Podcast

Does your gifted child have trouble connecting with peers? Does your child have trouble working or playing with peers? Is he or she emotionally sensitive and more easily hurt by what peers say and do? Dr. Meghan Barlow explores the factors that interfere with the social relationships of gifted kids. She discusses such topics as trouble connecting with peers, cognitive rigidity (a child’s difficulty in changing his or her thinking) and uneven intellectual, physical and emotional development. Dr. Barlow also provides recommendations for how parents and caregivers can best support their gifted child’s social development.
