Embrace the Essence: Understanding the Gifted Child

How is the gifted brain different anatomically? What are some ways gifted individuals experience life at a more intense level? How does that impact their learning and relationships with others? How can we support and “embrace” our children? This session is for parents of children who are gifted (whether they are labeled as such and receiving gifted services or not) to gain a deeper understanding of how gifted brains are different, overexcitabilities, and the implications of both.
