About Gifted Culture Kids
Gifted kids regularly struggle to make sense of what it means to be different- “Is something wrong with me?”, “Where do I fit-in?”, “Why don’t other people get me?” And we, the passionate adults in the lives of these kids often struggle to find the right words, ideas, and stories that not only provide the information, but also the real-world skills they need to successfully navigate a neurotypical world. Enter Gifted Culture Kids– a story and activity-based publication that takes difficult experiences of difference and transforms them into insight and courage. It takes existential questions of fitting-in and turns them into true evidence of belonging. And it takes the language of misunderstanding and misjudgment and translates it into resilience.
Coming in Spring of 2018, Gifted Culture Kids (GCK) will feature stories about giftedness as kids experience it in the real world, information and insights from subject-matter experts in the field of giftedness, and empowering messages of hope and encouragement that kids can take with them into their daily lives.
