Current Research Participation Opportunities

Stories of families with Profoundly Gifted and Autistic (PG/ASD) children.

PG/ASD children represents a subpopulation of gifted outliers. Few studies have been conducted with this population. As a parent of a PG/ASD son, I am very interested in narratives of such families. I hope that qualitative analysis of the narratives of our collective journeys may review patterns which can then be further formulated into research questions to guide future research.

Teenage and Young Adult Twice-exceptional Families

Self awareness, self advocacy, and social-emotional tools and resources appropriate for families with twice-exceptional teens and/or young adults are currently lacking. I have developed a Virtual Interactive Awareness and Advocacy Tool based on my interdisciplinary search of literature within the twice-exceptional, gifted, special education, neuroscience, and psychology literature. Additionally, this tool uses a synthesis of Brain-Targeted Teaching@, Strength-based educational approach, and multi-systems framework.

If you would like to:

  1. Share your PG/ASD parenting and educational journey,
  2. Participate in test driving the Virtual Interactive Awareness and Advocacy Tool
