What Does Gifted Look Like?

Unexpected Characteristics of Gifted Children And What You Can Do to Help Them

 Oak Park, IL

Contrary to popular opinion, it is not easy to identify a gifted child.  Some are obliging enough to teach themselves to read at a young age, or to build a new machine out of household items, but most are not. How do we find these gifted children? Especially the ones who are from socially diverse populations where giftedness is differently expressed or specifically suppressed? Or the ones who are gifted but also struggle with another learning difference – hidden or obvious?

Sheryl Stoller is a PCI Certified Parent Coach®, founder of Stoller Parent Coaching, and the parent coach at The Center for Identity Potential. She is a Certified SENG-Model Parent Group Facilitator – Supporting Emotional Needs of Gifted, and mother of three intense children affected by asynchronous development, all of whom are now flourishing young adults. Drawing on her professional and personal experience, Sheryl specializes in coaching parents of children with intense behaviors and emotions, many of whom are gifted or twice exceptional. Through their collaboration with Sheryl, parents develop personal customized approaches in key areas such as: de-escalating and preventing reactive anger and worry in both their children and themselves; modeling and guiding their children in effective life skills; and recapturing joy and love on their parenting journey.  She invites you to visit her at and her Stoller Parent Coaching FB page, or contact her directly at either or (708) 358-8289.
