An interview with Scott Barry Kaufman was featured in Saturday, July 20’s Globe and Mail. “As a child, Scott Barry Kaufman had an auditory disorder that made it difficult to process words in real time. . . . he performed badly in IQ tests, had to repeat Grade 3 and spent years in special education. He was told that his disability made high-level academic achievement unlikely. Today Dr. Kaufman is a cognitive psychologist at New York University with a PhD from Yale and a master’s degree from Cambridge.” (Hune-Brown, p. F3) His latest book, Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined ( part of our e-book collection) attempts to come up with a new way of looking at talent and intelligence.
