Gifted & Struggling: Emotional Support for Gifted & 2e Learners

Supporting our gifted learners emotionally is vital to their well-being and success. Gifted children are more than just high test scores or advanced academics, their unique sensitivities and asynchronous brain development put them under a great deal of pressure. Brain research is continuing to show us the exceptionality of gifted brain development as well as the effects of trauma. It is especially important to understand this for our gifted and 2e population as many of these children are already struggling socially, emotionally, and academically. This presentation will help participants better understand these learners as well as provide practical strategies to support them.
