RLL 77 Asynchronous Development in Gifted Children

RLL #77: Asynchronous Development in Gifted Children


The label “gifted” conjures up images of beautifully wrapped presents with neatly tied bows, images that are a stark contrast to the reality of giftedness: asynchrony.  There can be huge differences between a gifted child’s physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development. A gifted child can have the intelligence of an adult with the social-emotional development of a child!

Today, Colleen shares an audioblog — an article that first appeared on the site — written by Cait Curley of My Little Poppies, who explores the many facets of asynchrony, and gives practical advice on parenting these quirky children.
