Formerly known as Critical Conversations about Cognitive Diversity, this monthly webcast is hosted by Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman and features in-depth conversations with the top minds in gifted and twice-exceptional education. Dr. Kaufman, the director of research at the 2e Center, is a prominent voice in the neurodiversity movement and has published broadly about intelligence and creativity, including his books Ungifted and Wired to Create. His most recent book Transcend reconceives Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs as a framework to drive self-discovery and actualization.

She writes about education, parenting, and child welfare for The Atlantic, Vermont Public Radio, The Washington Post, and the New York Times. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. Her second book, The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependence, will be released in April 2021.
