Social Emotional

Gifted people are also gifted emotionally, and this can be both beneficial and harmful. We refer to the social-emotional needs of gifted children as "Affective Needs", and a regular portion of the CATS curriculum focuses on affective needs.

As a parent you'll want to be aware of these needs, and also recognize when to step back and when to step in. Sometimes it is difficult to know when an 'issue' becomes a 'problem'. It is further difficult to recognize that these are not problems we can 'fix,' but rather, problems we can understand.
