Oct 10, 2021

On episode 105, we welcome back Licensed Professional Counselor Emily-Kircher Morris to discuss teaching twice exceptional (2e) children, the neurodiversity movement and its contribution to helping us accept the neurological differences in one another, Alen’s early struggles with anxiety and how they affected his schoolwork, how specific disabilities (such as Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, and Depressive Disorders) caused teachers and caregivers to overlook children’s exceptional cognitive abilities, Bill de Blasio’s decision to end gifted and talented programs in NYC public schools, why equality of opportunity is better for our communities than equality of outcome, the ways in which gifted programs can be improved and expanded to include more Black and Latino students, clinical counseling for 2e children and adults, and why pretending that some children aren’t intellectually gifted can harm all of them.

Emily Kircher-Morris, LPC has dual Masters degrees in Counseling and Education. She specializes in working with gifted/high-potential and 2e students, including those with ADD/ADHD, Asperger's/High-Functioning Autism, and anxiety.
