About Beyond Intelligence

Dona Matthews, PhD, and Joanne Foster, EdD, authors of the award-winning Being Smart about Gifted Education, and several other titles, are experts on children’s optimal development and education. Our work focuses on children who love to learn, and those who don’t. We provide information and resources for parents and educators who want to provide the necessary supports in the learning process– guidance, challenge, and encouragement.

In this blog, we write about intelligence and more, sharing ideas and practical tips for helping parents raise happily productive kids. We recognize that intelligence matters, but not necessarily in the ways it’s traditionally been defined and understood. Beyond IQ, there are many different kinds of intelligence, as well as other attributes that are important to success and fulfilment in life–attributes like creativity, resilience, character, and confidence.
