Empowerment Starts Here with Bernette Sherman (click here to listen to the episode).
Scroll down to access links and other resources mentioned in Episode 38- “The Case of Giftedness.”
In this conversation, you will hear Bernette talk about giftedness, about how she advocates for her children as they embody different types of gifts, and about being gifted in the margins. We spend a good chunk of time talking politically about giftedness, about the federal definition provided for gifted and talented programming, and about the ways in which capitalism and commercialism make space for some gifts while ignoring/invalidating others.
In the close out I talk more about the differences between being gifted versus being talented; about a type of giftedness that gets ignored; and about those consequences of walking in the world without a name or value for such giftedness.
