The G-word


The G word

Defying popular myths that assume most gifted people are wealthy, white, and will do fine on their own, THE G WORD highlights the educational challenges, social isolation, deep emotional sensitivities, and complex, neurodiverse brains of the gifted and talented population in the US at every stage of life and reveals their economic, cultural, and gender diversity. It puts a face to the physical threats experienced by many in our schools and society-at-large, while also revealing a large and lively community of people working hard to meet their needs while challenging the prejudice and trauma that comes with being labelled “smart” in the 21st century.

The G Word team is working with many organizations to create an unprecedented dialogue that invites people in countries around the globe, as well as in all 50 states of the US, to reconsider gifted/special education, learning differences, and neurodiversity, as well as the need for social justice, equity, and access associated with all types of intelligence in the 21st Century.
