Now in post-production, The G Word is the most comprehensive film ever undertaken on gifted, talented, and neurodiverse education and populations. The film seeks to ask the question: In the 21st century, who gets to be “gifted” in America and why?
The G Word reveals the economic, cultural, and gender diversity of our nation’s gifted and talented population at every stage of life, highlighting their educational challenges, social isolation, deep emotional sensitivities, and complex, neurodiverse brains. It reveals a large and lively community of people working hard to meet the needs of gifted students while challenging the prejudice and trauma that comes with being labeled “smart” in the 21st century.
