Gifted children often have unique emotional, intellectual and learning needs, and meeting them has its own unique challenges for familes and educators. Join our community as Dr. Jim Delisle, one of the nation's foremost experts on raising and teaching gifted children, discusses the complexities of a gifted child's life and shares insightful strategies for raising a child who thrives in and out of school.
Dr. Jim Delisle calls on the findings of child-psychology and his 30-plus years of experience to offer a cogent understanding of giftedness in children. He deals with perfectionism in gifted children, being an adult role model for children, building a child's character, and helping kids achieve their goals and dreams. Jim is known for providing a humorous, engaging, and encouraging look at raising gifted children in our world today.
Jim is the author of 17 books and more than 250 articles on gifted children, and has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, People Magazine, on Oprah and more. He was a professor of education at Kent State University (Ohio) for 25 years and was selected by faculty and students there as a "Distinguished Professor”—the University's most prestigious teaching award. Jim also taught gifted children for 16 years.
Jim continues to consult with schools worldwide, and Emerson School and the Emerson School Parent Organization (ESPO) is excited to present this unique learning opportunity to parents, families and educators throughtout the greater-Ann Arbor community.
