Under-identification, misdiagnosis and misunderstanding gifted/2e children runs rampant across all checkpoints, from the classroom to the doctor’s office to the home. Consequences from under-identification of gifted and 2e students and the resulting lack of interventions include failure to thrive, average or below average reading and mathematics achievement, boredom, rebellion, underachievement, dropping out, inappropriate or disruptive classroom behavior, and/or social withdrawal. Adriane, owner of the highly regarded Bloom Pediatrics in West Los Angeles, invites you to learn the distinguishing characteristics of giftedness/2e and recognize how these characteristics impact behavior, particularly in young children, and will give you tools and strategies for you to teach your children to improve their self-regulation and social participation. You will also learn about obtaining referrals, including for occupational therapy, and building a village tailored to your family’s particular needs.
Adriane is a pediatric occupational therapist and owner of Bloom Pediatrics in West Los Angeles. She has over 20 years of experience in working with children who are gifted or 2e. Adriane received her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Boston University (2022), Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy from the University of Southern California (2000), and Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh (1997).
