Free LIVE Webinar: Raising Your 2E Child
8 to 8:30 pm Eastern
Raising Your 2E Child
William & Mary
Description: Parenting is hard but parenting a twice-exceptional student can feel like you are constantly fighting for what your child needs in a land of people that just don't understand. In this session, Dr. Ashley Y. Carpenter teaches you about both the lands of gifted/talented education and special education. Learn the terminology, what to ask for, and who to talk to on your advocacy journey. She is the parent of a twice exceptional child, a former special education teacher, gifted teacher, and is now an Assistant Professor of Gifted Education.
