“When I went to see Dr. Mines I felt this was my last hope to get my family back on track. After four glorious days of learning and treatment I can tell you that it saved us. Within two months of at-home practice we were all completely different. My boys no longer complained of constant headaches and stomach aches. The explosive anger and anxiety were gone. My boys tell me how much they love TARA. It will be passed on in my family for generations to come.” - Loretta Neal

Nourishing Giftedness focuses on guiding parents towards identifying the unique attributes their children possess. It can be challenging to attune to someone who is repeatedly distressed, acting out, uncomfortable or ill. Nevertheless these behaviors may be masking the child’s gifts. Nourishing Giftedness uses, in part, the models of other talented scientists and artists who were retroactively diagnosed with sensory challenges like Nikola Tesla or Emily Dickinson. Reports from these gifted people and those who knew them hint at how to support a child with unusual capacities. Then there is the task of developing nourishing environments to cultivate these gifts. Eustacia Cutler, Temple Grandin’s mother, is a superb model of how to create niche construction, or a lifestyle and living space organized around cultivating human potential. This handbook extrapolates from these examples to inspire families. It goes one step further with a special section on how to sustain niche construction, or a supportive environment when a child is hospitalized. Many children with special needs require prolonged medical attention. This is a challenge for the entire family. Nourishing Giftedness addresses this neglected topic with a fusion of creativity and practicality. Suggestions are based on case studies tested in the medical environment.
