An enriching series for gifted kids and their parents

Registration Open!

We are excited to bring you a series of talks about giftedness and its impact on raising your family. Join us to explore giftedness. Each session will focus on a different topic in depth. Each session will also provide opportunities for children to socialize, as we recognize how important it is for children to have opportunities to enjoy themselves with social and intellectual peers.

The cost for the two sessions in May and June is only $35 per family thanks to ABC's hosting of the events.

Read more below for the details of each session. The registration form is embedded in this newsletter as well for your convenience. Register early to secure your place. Spaces are limited to ensure a meaningful experience for parents and children alike. We look forward to seeing you and your family!

How to Talk About Giftedness to Teachers, Administrators, Coaches and Instructors

Saturday, June 4th, 2-4pm

191 Dawn Drive, London, ON, Canada (Princess Anne French Immersion PS)

Every person your child comes into contact with has a preconceived idea of what giftedness is and what it should look like as they are working with your child. In many communities, giftedness is confused with or interchanged with achievement, good behaviour, and society approved motivation (getting into university, making a lot of money, etc.). Though many gifted children are high achieving and well behaving, for a number of reasons, some of which are associated with giftedness itself, many gifted children are not. This session will provide parents the language to explain their complex children to teachers, administrators, coaches and instructors in a way that helps them understand how the gifted child experiences the world different than others their age. Participants will also learn how to provide suggestions on how to effectively deal with their unusual children in a manner which promotes teamwork and understanding with these important and influential people in your child’s life.

Webinar offered onsite followed by Q & A will end at 3:30, with the afternoon wrapping up by 4:00.
