My dd is still young, and thankfully has not yet had extensive problems, though I am still not comfortable at this point discussing them in the current climate. How about I list some issues with other gifted children I've worked with through the years...

Okay- I typed several pages worth and then thought better of it. Anyone who doesn't understand and is truly interested in what special needs gifted kids might have is invited to pm me. I don't feel up for the backlash right now.

It appears that the locked thread under Q&S is being continued here. Please understand we are revisiting this issue and are considering all sides. This is not the place to debate what belongs in this forum and what doesn't. Please direct your concerns to the Admins at this point and know that the mod team is thinking long and hard about your concerns and feelings. Things like this take time to consider, and debating it back and forth at this point is not going to do anything except cause hurt feelings.

This thread is locked until I get a chance to review it and remove any posts that are inappropriate in this forum, which should be a forum of support for all parents of children that they consider have special needs.
