bulletGifted and the Internet: Resources @ Your Fingertips

Find “the good stuff,” from identification to testing, enrichment to acceleration, twice exceptional to profoundly gifted, traditional school to homeschool, parenting and social-emotional, free curriculum, on-line support communities, and much more... 


Plus safety issues surrounding the Internet, “stranger danger,” unwanted publicity, viruses, spyware, popups, etc.  How can we help our gifted children use the Internet safely?

bulletBeyond Academics: Social / Emotional Needs of the Gifted
bulletIs the gifted child different from other children?  Yes!  Social development, emotional maturity, friends, peers, introvert / extravert, and more. The gifted child's asynchronous development is not just academic.  But their needs are not so different: they need to be accepted for who and what they are.  How can we accomplish this?
bulletTesting and Assessment of Gifted Children: What Does It Mean?

We talk about testing gifted children, but what do the tests really tell us?  Is it achievement or intelligence testing?  Individual or group testing?  Using standardized tests or curriculum based assessment?  What scores are reported, and what do they mean: standard scores, percentiles, grade-equivalents?  Is the test nationally normed or locally created?  Norm-referenced or criterion-referenced?  Does it matter?  YES!  Learn what various tests are (and arenít), how they compare to each other, and how their results apply to the day-to-day reality of the gifted child in the classroom.

bulletTwice Exceptional: Is it possible to be Gifted *and* Learning Disabled?
bulletWhat is "twice exceptional?"  Gifted and learning disabled is a tough combination to teach, to parent, and to be! Often, these children are identified as only one or the other.  They may be seen only as gifted, especially when they're young, and their gifts can mask their disabilities.  Or they may be seen only as learning disabled, and their giftedness ignored in favor of dealing with their disabilities.  Or worst: they may not be identified at all!  Learn about twice exceptional children, resources for identification, education, and more...
bulletUnderachievement: Enforced, Learned and Twice Exceptional
bulletEnforced, learned, or twice exceptional: underachievement can have many causes, and a variety of solutions.  Come learn about the differences, and similarities, and many of the possible solutions, to underachievement.  The first step to resolving underachievement is to figure out what's causing the underachievement - then we can begin to resolve it!
bulletParenting and Educating the Exceptionally Gifted Child
bulletParenting and educating exceptionally gifted children is very different from parenting the moderately gifted child. Yet these children can be difficult to spot. Sometimes they appear socially backwards, academically lazy, and generally un-gifted. Other times, they may appear perfectly normal or only moderately gifted. Yet their needs are vastly different. Using a case study approach and recent research, this presentation provides a parent’s perspective on raising and educating profoundly gifted children. Levels of giftedness, early behavior, appropriate assessment, and strategies for parenting and education are offered...
bulletResearch Meets Reality: the Exceptionally Gifted Child
bulletGifted is not a light switch that is either on or off, but a continuum that much gifted research fails to take into account.  Parents of exceptionally and profoundly gifted students struggle, wading through the research and “educationese” to find information that helps them understand the particular problems faced by their very unusual children.  In this session, share what I have learned through research and reality, about advocating, supporting, and educating for this special population.  Topics include asynchronous development, underachievement, twice exceptional, educational options, and more…

bulletFAQ: Frequently Answered Questions - what do YOU want to know about Gifted?
bulletSometimes, folks are more interested in asking questions at the end of the presentation, than in the content of the presentation itself.  From Identification and Testing, to Talent Search and Acceleration, to Exceptionally Gifted or Underachieving or both, what do YOU want to know about being a gifted child?
