It is often assumed that gifted children will have organisation and planning skills on par with their intellectual capacities. This is often not the case. If you are the parent or teacher of a gifted student, come and listen to Michele Juratowitch as she outlines Executive Functions and what we can do to support our gifted children to develop skills and strategies to launch a successful future.
Are you the parent or teacher of a gifted student with learning disabilities or differences? Join us for a screening of '2e : twice exceptional', a film that follows the journeys of students like yours.
There will be time for general questions and an informal discussion following the film.
Join us via ZOOM as we share our experiences of remote learning across a range of settings. We will outline some of our findings and observations from this time, sharing the views of students and adults, highlighting what has been learnt, and what can be acted upon as we move forward.
It has been a most unusual year for us all; however gifted students returning to school after a period of remote learning are experiencing a range of challenges that are related to who they are and how they learn.
How do parents and educators appropriately support gifted students to positively transition from a remote learning environment to a school setting?
How can we ensure that gifted students' learning and psycho-social needs are adequately addressed at this time?
How might adults manage the fluctuating demands of our society's 'new normal' while safeguarding students' emotional well-being and ensuring that opportunities available for gifted students are responsive to their learning needs?
Join us via ZOOM to listen to Michele Juratowitch as she provides some guidance on this topical issue. Please see Michele's bio below. When you register for this FREE event, a ZOOM link will be provided to you via email, an hour before the event.
Understanding the psychosocial characteristics of gifted youth is critical if we are to know how to support the emotional and social needs of gifted students while simultaneously providing optimal intellectual and academic challenges – whether at home or at school. Presented by Michele Juratowitch
