Gifted Children, Twice Exceptional Children – How to Find Giftedness

Giftedness, an idea that traditionally was reserved for a small select population, has been expanded by developmental psychologists like Howard Gardner and Abraham Maslow. Everyone is gifted at something, and this idea has played out in educational settings across the United States. However, the settings are few.

Continuing the discussion on Twice Exceptional children, this show takes a closer look at how to discover the hidden Gifted child.
