Description

Many gifted and talented children and adults exhibit both medical and mental/emotional symptoms. Often these individuals are very sensitive and may not respond well to conventional treatments with numerous side effects and some that we have assisted have been placed on thirty-one medications at the same time to mitigate side effects of other medications. Some are also dual-diagnosed and misdiagnosed. Many integrative, functional, natural, holistic solutions are available and effective for these sensitive and bright G, T & 2E individuals. These will be reviewed along with special attention to learning differences and asynchronies that are common as well. Commonly diagnosed medical conditions include Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome, Autoimmune Conditions, Fibromyalgia, Migraine Headaches, OCD, Bipolar Illness, GAD to name a few. A more strength-based and applied positive model of working with 2E populations will also be addressed. Dr. Archana and Jim have had a combined 70 years of experience personally and professionally in effectively assisting these populations with much gratitude from those assisted and excellent results as their clients progress through their lifetimes following their strengths & gifts in a balanced and harmonious manner.
