Limited Capacity seats available

Many gifted children suffer their own kind of trauma as they cope with trying to fit into society and expectations placed on them. Having society, parents, teachers, a school system not understand them and how they think and learn, can have a profound impact on a gifted child. This presentation will open your eyes to what our children are going through, and also provide you with some strategies to help support them.
