Fall 2020 - Supporting Social & Emotional Needs of Gifted
Social & Emotional Needs of Gifted Students
As parents and teachers, we want to support the very special needs of Gifted Students as well as our children dealing with the new circumstances we find ourselves in.
Although we would love to be meeting in person to share this information, we hope that you will find parts of this presentation in the SMORE helpful in supporting your children and the many facets of being gifted.
Resources in this newsletter have been pulled together by all of the NPS Gifted Resource Coordinators. A big thank you to all of them for this and for all they do to help our Gifted students.
Also remember to please reach out to your school Gifted Resource Coordinator if you need anything to help your child be more successful, happy, and supported. We are here to help.
