I hate the phrase gifted kid burnout so much and I hate the weird elitism that comes with it. Like y'all aren't gifted kids "losing ur touch" ur neurodivergent and need accomodations, such as the ones they provided during class.
The gifted test is literally a test to see if you have neurodivergencies or not, and it is all about pattern recognition, something that studies have proven time and time again that autistic people are really good at.
If you look into what the GATE program is about, it literally says it wants to weed out autistic/ADHD people who have useful traits from autistic people or adhd people that do not. It's f/cking weird n they should have been more upfront about what it's actually abt.
Ppl r like "omg gifted kid burnout!!! I used to be so good at xyz!! So weird that so many of us turned out to be ND" like.
That's almost like. That's almost like thats the whole point of the program
