Gifted Talented Neurodiversity Awareness Week wouldn’t be the same without talking about #actuallygifted Adults. Heather and our host, Sophia Elliott, talk about being a gifted adult, being identified as a child or as an adult (as gifted & Neuro-diverse) and the highs and lows of those journeys!
Check out our 5 PODCASTS over 5 DAYS for GTN Awareness Week and all the FREE events on this week!

“Because everything had come so easy up until that, in all of my subjects, when things started to get hard, then I started to say, well, I’m not interested in that, and I don’t want to do that anymore. That permeated everything and yeah, I found it very difficult because all of my peers had learned how to persist with things at a younger age because things had been tricky for them. So they had to try work these things out. Whereas I hadn’t had to do that.” – Heather Cox
