The Pursuit of Talent

Let’s help our children develop to their fullest potential, so they become happy, talented and fulfilled adults.

Lately, there has been a growing trend of discovering children’s talents. Until recently, parents seem to have been more occupied with investigating children’s disorders than their talents. In almost every classroom, there were at least a few children with various disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD). Now, the tendency toward looking for disorders is fading and parents are beginning to explore the giftedness of their children.

The surge in the recognition of dysfunctions led to an explosion of clinics that diagnose and support children with disabilities. In contrast, the new trend is focused on the talents and abilities of children, driving the growth of children's use extracurricular activities, additional educational activities, and special schools for the most talented. But there is a gap in this new trend. Although an increasing number of books, guides, workshops, and websites are offering programs and activities to support the development of children (either in general or in very specific areas), there is no legitimate evaluation or diagnosis, which would determine which talent or abilities should be developed. The dysfunction diagnoses, meanwhile, come with a full set of measures from finding and labeling the difficulty or dysfunction to taking steps to overcome or at least reduce its negative effects.

Perhaps, for many people, there really is no need to diagnose capabilities or talents. Just supporting parents to build their children’s talent or ability may be enough. Unfortunately, not everyone sees the need to find children’s talents and to discover what each particular child can excel at. Consequently, the child misses out on the development of that talent which is likely to yield the greatest benefits in the future .

That’s exactly where we would like to assist parents - in the discovery of their children’s most promising talents. Of course, we will not ignore the idea of developing these talents, because discovery alone is not enough. We will also help parents to monitor these talents through the developmental stages of childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and ultimately adulthood. All of our activities will be based on scientific studies, the results of empirical research, extensive educational experience, and conclusions drawn from the most up-to-date studies of features and capabilities of the brain.
