    Am I the Impostor Among Us?

    Am I the Impostor Among Us?

    There’s a nagging feeling most of us experience from time to time, that tells us maybe we’ve fooled everyone. We shouldn’t have been placed in a certain position, or we’re not qualified to take on a project. On episode 75 we talk to Lindsay Lee, the author of a study about impostorism. Why do we experience it? What can we do to tamp it down?

    A Holiday Shopping and Celebration Guide (Encore)

    We’re using the holiday break to retool our podcast for its debut in January as The Neurodiversity Podcast! In the meantime this is an encore presentation of episode 48, featuring Jen Merrill. Shopping can be a headache, but choosing the right gifts for high-ability kids is extra-challenging. Oh, and Emily divulges her darker history as a “peeker.”

    Mind Matters Composite: Creativity

    Mind Matters Composite: Creativity

    We’re making some changes that will refocus the podcast just a little. When we return in January, Mind Matters will be known by a new name: the Neurodiversity Podcast. The new name better defines what we do, helps people recognize and understand what we’re about, and hopefully makes us even easier to find.

    The theme of today’s episode is creativity, and we’re featuring segments from past conversations with experts who know a thing or two about the subject.

Game Changer

This podcast is amazing. Not only has it given me a better understanding of my children and how to be a better parent, but it has also given me a better insight into my own experience.

This is awesome

I really like how they/you give good details. When ever I’m mad or upset I just come to my phone and listen to a video. I have ADHD and all the videos help with it! Thanks!!!😀

Concentrated on twice exceptional kids

I have listened to 6 of these podcasts. They probably have good info for parents of twice exceptional kids but so far I have found nothing applicable to my extremely bright, extremely quick kid. All my siblings and myself were also designated gifted and I would recognize applicable subject matter. There just wasn’t any. I am very disappointed but not surprised. Most of the presentations I have heard on gifted kids concentrate on the twice exceptional and otherwise troubled learners. There is very little out there that deals with the quick bright kids who are well adjusted.
