Presented by Boulder Valley Gifted and Talented and by the Boulder Valley School District.

Giftedness is not about recognized achievement; it is about who you are, not what you do. You have unique characteristics that lead to unusual experiences throughout the lifespan. You are intense, complex, sensitive, perfectionistic, idealistic, mission driven, indignant about injustices no one else seems to notice. In this presentation, you will learn how a deeper understanding of your giftedness can lead to greater compassion for others and enable you to fulfill your life’s mission.

Linda Kreger Silverman, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist. She founded the Institute for the Study of Advanced Development (ISAD) and Gifted Development Center (GDC) in Westminster, Colorado.
