Building a solid social and emotional foundation for gifted individuals is the key to their success in all aspects of life. As those foundational skills are not inherent in the developing gifted mind, they must be taught just as one would teach any academic subject. This seminar will address the development of the gifted mind and why and how these ‘soft skills’ are essential to survival.
