Myth 17: Gifted and Talented Individuals Do Not Have Unique Social and Emotional Needs
Peterson, Jean Sunde
Gifted Child Quarterly, v53 n4 p280-282 2009
Empirical and clinical literatures have challenged the myth that gifted students do not have unique social and emotional concerns. When this myth prevails, pertinent concerns are not recognized and addressed formally or informally, proactively or reactively. Educators, parents, coaches, and even counselors may miss indications of distress. Lack of opportunity for gifted students to discuss concerns related to social and emotional development potentially contributes to vulnerability.
