Issues Facing GT Learners

2 Questions I Still Have

  1. Is there a link between diagnosing learners as ADHD or autistic and being a GT learner? Are those learners sometimes diagnosed incorrectly?
  2. What makes GT learners feel too much pressure to perform?

3 Big Ideas I Learned

  • GT learners seem to exhibit their high functioning abilities at a very young age
  • There seems to be a lot of parental support in helping their children develop their abilities.
  • Sometimes, the pressure can lead to great minds doing menial jobs instead of reaching their potential.
