"As the editor of an international, refereed journal in the field of gifted education I am always on the lookout for top-flight expertise. Sue Jackson is an important go-to person in the field when it comes to big-picture, holistic perspectives on giftedness and talent development. Given today’s enormous problems and opportunities her in-depth knowledge of exceptionally and profoundly gifted is becoming even more important. Many of us have been trying to expand conceptions of giftedness beyond the superficial, easily measured abilities that tend to dominate practice. Fortunately, Sue’s work is a bright beacon of light in a somewhat murky conceptual landscape. Through her publications and presentations she has pushed the field in more productive directions. She has my utmost admiration and respect. Sue’s work is very important."
"In the decades that I have worked in the field of Gifted and Talented, I have come across very few with the knowledge and skill set embodied in P. Susan Jackson. Her extra-ordinary insight into gifted individuals and her profound commitment to their intellectual, social, and emotional well-being is rare. I am privileged to know Susan as a friend and colleague."
"Sue Jackson has explored the world of the profoundly gifted individual since the day she was born. She has an exceptional ability to help one understand the unique and normal world of a profoundly gifted person. She has spent years using her acute and empathic listening skills to understand how the profoundly gifted view their world, operate within it, contend with others who miss the “big picture,” and reason through their understanding of the events happening around them and the broad, long-term implications of those events. Her presentations on the profoundly gifted community gives her audience an eye-opening vista to the characteristics and operation of the profoundly gifted mind."
"Sue Jackson is by far, one of THE leading experts on highly/profoundly gifted children! During my tenure as the Director of Gifted Programs for the Bloomington Public Schools in Minnesota, I designed and implemented a program for highly/profoundly gifted students in grades 2-10. Sue was an enormous resource in the crafting of this program. Her attention to the unique metaphysical, social and emotional needs of our students allowed us to infuse interventions seamlessly throughout the school day. We were also able to provide our parents with supports, based on the ideas of Ms. Jackson. I've known Sue personally and professionally for over 20 years. She is my "go to" colleague, whom I can count on to share her wisdom, talents and expertise of highly/profoundly gifted youth."
"P. Susan Jackson continually inspires both in words and in actions. Her depth of understanding of the multi-faceted whole being existence of highly and profoundly gifted individuals is authentic and clearly grows from her own personal experiences. She is a much valued and accomplished psychotherapist. Her written work doesn't simply convey information, but also elicits wonder, humanity, and emotion. Her Integral Practice Model is visionary. Her documentary RISE is a profound must-see for this population. Her public talks are shared with the heart and the voice of a poet. I’m grateful to know her and recommend her and her work to others."
"I have known P. Susan Jackson (Sue) since sometime in the last millennium, when we met at the Gifted Underachievers conference in Denver. Over the years since then, I have shared conferences and clients, theories and thoughts, and ideas and inspirations with her. She has been unfailingly personable and professional, but beyond that she has brought a freshness in perspective and wisdom in consideration to whatever topic has been at hand. There is nobody I know of who understands the mind, heart, and soul of a profoundly gifted child better. Sue is one of my most important go-to people when I am wrestling with something, whether a difficult situation with a client or a challenge in how to approach a conceptual model. She is also a very good friend, despite living on the wrong coast!"
