GIFTED KIDS, ADHD, AND AUTISM: WHY TWICE-EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN ARE STUCK AND HOW TO HELP THEM
Hosted by Diane Kennedy and Rebecca Banks, authors of Bright Not Broken and The ADHD-Autism Connection with Dr Temple Grandin.
As we have discussed many times on our show taking a whole child approach is optimal in discovering how to best assist children with Twice-Exceptionality (Giftedness, Autism, Adhd...) Once we understand the many factors that underlie a child's giftedness and his unique intensities, we can more deeply appreciate and support the whole child. Our overriding goal as parents should be to cultivate the wonderful and original talents in our children. Everything else-supports, interventions,therapies,education-should be undertaken with this goal in mind. We begin this series featuring Dr. Dan Peters and Dr.Susan Daniels founders of The Summit Center in California. Dr. Peters has devoted his career to the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and families, specializing in overcoming worry and fear, learning differences such as dyslexia, and issues related to giftedness and twice-exceptionality. He is author of Make Your Worrier a Warrior: A Guide to Conquering Your Child’s Fears and From Worrier to Warrior: A Guide to Conquering Your Fears. In addition, he is co-author of Raising Creative Kids. Dr. Susan Daniels is Educational Director of the Summit Center. She provides Differentiated Educational Plans for children and adolescents as part of the Gifted Comprehensive and Gifted Complex Assessments.
