– Three children, each with own gifted-ness, measurable and not

Sheryl’s three children span various gifts. Some were obvious and measurable, such as IQ, math and verbal abilities. Others were harder to quantify. Sheryl knows the joys those gifts can bring to a family. She also knows the frustrations, anger and sense of inadequacy that arise when children’s abilities present as unacceptable behaviors – for example, acting out in school fueled by boredom or frustration, or refusing to follow instructions, having reasoned through an alternative more to their liking. Sheryl brings her personal experience, professional training and relevant up-to-date research to others so they can flourish without unnecessary anguish, heartache or squandering of potential.
