You have likely come across terms like gifted, talented, smart, precocious, savant, and genius. Do all these words have the same meaning? Are they related? Or completely different? Well, the answer, perhaps frustratingly, depends on whom you ask!
With the next few posts, we hope to begin to introduce you to what people mean when they use these different terms or concepts. Our goal with this series of posts is to help make sure everyone “speaks the same language” when talking to each other about their students and children.
