SENG Webinar Event, May 16th – A Multidisciplinary Approach to Understanding and Managing Developmental Asynchronies in Young Highly Gifted Children
Date: May 16, 2013
Time: 4:30 p.m. Pacific [90 mins.]
Presenter: Stephanie Meyer, PhD
Children with superior intellectual capacities frequently manifest lagging skills in other areas of development. A variety of available intervention methods can help minimize the impact of developmental asynchronies on a child’s capacity to express his/her intellectual and creative gifts. This webinar features a panel comprised of a child psychologist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, special educator, behavioral analyst, and developmental optometrist, all of whom will discuss empirically supported strategies, within their respective fields, designed to target areas of challenge commonly seen among highly gifted youth.
Date: May 14, 2013
Time: 4:30 p.m. Pacific [90 mins.]
Presenter: Terry Friedrichs, PhD, EdD
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (GLBTQ) youth experience much higher-than-average rates of verbal and physical harassment, parental rejection, and suicide. However, these students also have great potential for academic success, as seen by their disproportionately-high representation in programs for the gifted.
This session explains how parents, siblings, and teachers can build on these students’ potential and can diminish the effect of others’ harm.
