Wednesday, December 16, at 7: Does “Giftedness” Look Like… and how can parents go about supporting the social and emotional needs of their gifted children?”

You’ve received a letter notifying you that your child is eligible for your school’s gifted program. Of course, you’re thrilled! You recognize your child’s unique talents, and you are glad the school will provide an environment that fosters those talents. So, what’s next? How do you support your child at home? Will there be an orientation that you can attend?

These are just a few of the questions you may have. In addition, the academic and talent development that your child will receive at school should also be complemented by social and emotional support. The letter you received likely doesn’t cover that, but there are many books that can help provide the information you need to support your child at home.

This presentation serves as an informational overview and exemplar for a PARENT ORIENTATION to giftedness and gifted programming through the use of book study/round-table discussions.

Through a series of frequently asked questions, the presenter will address the overarching question: What does ‘giftedness’ look like? And how can parents go about supporting the social and emotional needs of their gifted children? Additional resources provided.”*
