If having a gifted brain presents both blessings and challenges that the typical school experience may not address, what is a parent to do to be sure their child builds skills?
For me, designing programming that was individualized for each kid– from topic selection to the soft skills we supported to the areas of strength and weakness we worked with– made the most sense. Gifted students need to see depth and meaning in what they are working on in order to access motivation. Even then, they may struggle with organizational skills and perfectionism, procrastination, or communication. I have known many gifted students who were fantastic writers but “hated” math, or were avid readers who couldn’t communicate well.
Enter The Bean Center’s “Bean”-ius Hour Program.
This is not designed to “add more” to their plate, as it is not a class per se, but is a time designed to build the skills they need for success in all areas by allowing them to deeply explore an interest in a very supported way.
