[At MindPlus] everybody wanted to learn and you were accepted for who you were. It was also nice being surrounded by people who understood my intellect and didn’t think I was like some weird Brainiac. I felt I could truly be myself.
Learning with like minds
Research shows us that gifted kids benefit hugely from time spent with like-minded peers. Their academic needs are better met when they are grouped together and their social and emotional needs can be recognised and catered for.
This Gifted Awareness Week:
Talk to your gifted child about who thinks like them. Who understands how their mind works best? Maybe it’s someone at school, in a club or your family. Maybe it’s you. Talk together about how awesome it is to have that person in your child’s life!
