Understanding Your Gifted Child From the Inside-Out, an Evening with Jim Delisle

January 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Parents of gifted children and teens have many questions about how best to meet their intellectual and emotional needs. They want to know what giftedness is and the label’s impact on other family members. They want to know how to advocate for their gifted child in a school setting mired in “bringing up the bottom” rather than “raising the bar” at the top. They want to know how to set expectations that are appropriate and attainable. And they want to know how to juggle the wide range of emotional intensities that often “comes with the territory” in raising gifted kids. Dr. Delisle will discuss these unique needs for gifted parents.
