Giftedness, 2e and Overexcitabilities
This week Dr. Linda Silverman joins us to explore giftedness. Dr. Silverman, gifted expert and founder of The Gifted Development Center in Colorado, understands the complexity and challenges of giftedness as few, perhaps, do. Join us as she shares her insights about the intellectual, developmental, emotional characteristics, and overexcitabilities of gifted children and adults.
