thinkLaw Newsletter: Gifted at 7 and ADHD at 37

Gifted at 7. ADHD at 37

There is a cost to not identifying and supporting twice-exceptional students. Colin Seale’s story explains why.

Message from Colin Seale, thinkLaw’s Founder and CEO
My latest thinkLaw blog piece Gifted at 7, ADHD at 37: My Story and the Costs of Overlooking Twice-Exceptionality was our most viewed post since launching thinkLaw 5 years ago. It was also the hardest piece I ever wrote because it forced me to confront resentment and pain. It hurts that instead of helping me, the adults in my life labeled me defective. I am different, not defective. And I launched thinkLaw to help teachers reach kids like me whose brilliance rarely fits into the conforming box of K-12 education but still deserves to be unleashed. This is all part of my #BecauseNotDespite journey, and I’m thrilled that you have chosen to be a part of this work!
