The Paradox: Supporting High Potential, Super Perplexing Children.
Learn about the amazing neurodiverse strengths of twice-exceptional students!
Do you know a child who fits one or more of these statements?
• A high-potential, super-perplexing child.
• A seemingly intelligent child who has major learning, work production and assignment challenges. This includes children with a known disability who are receiving educational support (504 Plan or IEP), or who are not yet diagnosed.
• A child capable of building complex Lego projects, yet can’t complete a simple assignment at school.
• Do you see asynchrony in your child at home and school? Do you ever wonder how they can be so good at some subjects, yet struggle in others?
• Does your child devour books in the library, yet cannot hold a conversation in class or complete a written assignment?
Join us, as exports explore and discuss the strengths of neurodiversity and non-negotiables for twice-exceptional students to thrive.
