The much anticipated follow-up to the original movie 2e:The Twice Exceptional has arrived. Come along, grab some popcorn, and watch the movie surrounded by parents and teachers interested in supporting Twice Exceptional children.
Young people with well-developed emotional intelligence (EQ) earn higher grades, stay in school for longer and make healthier choices. In fact, emotional intelligence is a greater predictor of a child’s overall success in later years (relationships, career, health, general effectiveness and quality of life) than their IQ (Intelligence Quotient). What that means is that regardless of a child’s IQ, it is crucial for parents and teachers to help children build their emotional intelligence.
Join Melissa as she explains what emotional intelligence is; why we need it and how we get it.
