Description

Enhance your role as an educational leader, policy influencer and service provider!

How well do you understand the needs of gifted learners? What are the major concerns of parents?

On April 5, 2018, join Dr. James Webb, a leading expert in the educational needs of gifted learners, for a morning of research-based information and practical wisdom related to responding to and supporting your clients.

With the recent re-focus on special education across the province this school year, it is important that those in a position to influence policies and actions do so from an informed basis. Dr. Webb not only speaks from a lifetime of experience, but from the perspective of a researcher and scientist. His sessions are informative, interactive and receive outstanding reviews.

Join us for this unique opportunity for breakfast and an outstanding presentation. Each participant will receive a copy of Misdiagnosis and Dual Diagnosis of Gifted Children.

Abstract: Twelve frequent concerns for parents of gifted children are:(1) characteristics of gifted children, (2) finding a good educational fit, (3) motivation and underachievement, (4) discipline, power struggles, and self-management, (5) intensity, stress and perfectionism, (6) acquaintances, friends, and peers, (7) communication and relationships, (8) siblings and only children, (9) values, traditions, and uniqueness, (10) idealism, unhappiness, and depression, 11) complexities of modern parenting, (12) misdiagnosis and dual diagnoses. Information will be given about each, along with how four major factors— range of ability, asynchronous development, overexcitabilities, and thinking styles—influence these issues.
