  • The Physiologically Gifted Child

    Rae Tattenbaum of InnerAct, educates us on a newly identified group of children, those who are physiologically gifted. In the video Rae refers to the work of New York doctor Leah Logos.  According to Dr. Logos’ work, 10-15% of children fit this description. Rae talks about “PG” children and what can be done to help them.

    The physiologically gifted child

    Traits of physiologically gifted children are identified in the broadcast and listed below. In my experience, these fit many of my adult NeurOptimal® clients as well.

    • Higher heart rate in stressful situations
    • Strong ability for sensing/perceiving emotions
    • Innate abilities to connect with others
    • Easily overwhelmed by stress
    • Very sensitive to changes in sound and/or touch
    • Need quiet/alone time to maintain equilibrium

    These children are often given labels that don’t really fit them, such as ADHD, having issues with sensory integration, or Developmental Disorder. Or those issues may be present but more readily helped if PG is identified. Rae believes that the issues PG children have need to be dealt Neurofeedback for childrenwith first.

    Education of parents and children is the first thing that is done at Inner-Act, followed by neurofeedback.  Rae says, “When we do neurofeedback we find that children are more psychologically balanced.”

    The InnerAct program can help with other conditions as well, including anxiety and sadness. For neurofeedback in the New York City area, please contact us.

    Knowledge can make a huge difference.
