Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD is a Cognitive Psychologist, Researcher and Author who has focused his work on redefining how we think about intelligence and creativity. In ‘Ungifted’ Kaufman shares his own personal story of being diagnosed as learning disabled as a child and recounts the limitations and restrictions that he faced as a result of this labelling process, how he resisted it and moved beyond it. ‘Ungifted’ is impressive because it combines Kaufman’s inspirational first person narrative account with an indepth critical and reflexive analysis of the relevant theory and research, its implications for practice and of course its relevance to our everyday lives!
I wanted to share a wonderful conversation that I had recently with Pam Laricchia, author and unschooling advocate, for her ‘Exploring Unschooling’ podcast series. I really enjoyed talking with Pam about parenting, unschooling and child development. We covered so much!
