Brains on Fire: How Gifted Brains Learn
Conference welcomes Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide
In this fascinating presentation, Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide will offer a detailed review of the typical neurodevelopment of bright and gifted children and the blessings and burdens that frequently accompanies their increased sensitivities and enhanced thinking and memories.
The Eides will highlight recent advances in neuropsychology that have increased our understanding of the paradox of the talented child who struggles with learning. These findings raise important issues about how such children should best be identified, accommodated, and educated to reach their potential.
