Calling All Parents...
Is your child an early reader? Showing advanced abilities- beyond same age peers- in music, art, math or other areas? Is she intensely curious or sensitive? Is he bored or acting out in the general ed classroom? A bit too good at negotiating? And are you looking for resources and ways you can support your advanced learner?
If so, join us for the P.A.L. Workshop Series and discover how we can help each other with the typical issues of accelerated learners.
Topics this season include: Positive Discipline & Your Advanced Learner; The G&T Process: Admissions & Testing; What's the Right Fit for My Child and Supporting Early Giftedness Through Play. Plus, we have a Spring series planned with special topics for preschool through high school, including Supporting Your Child's Gifts & Talents; The Power of Books: Bibliotherapy; Understanding Learning Differences & Twice Exceptionality, Special Topics in Gifted Education & a special event for the Gifted Education Community.
