President of the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children
with Challenging Behaviours
in Gifted & Talented Young People
When a child starts to be uncomfortable due to their needs not being met for whatever reason, it is quite common for constellations of worrying or perceived negative behaviours to surface. These can be quite limiting and be a cause of students not moving forward in a healthy way- dimming of their light. This talk explores some of these challenges, and possible reasons behind them, in order to aid understanding. It explores some possible helpful reflections and strategies to remove limiting environmental and other factors so they may continue on their journeys with no limits and shine.
