Parent Workshops

Parents find great solace and support when interacting with other parents who have similar parenting struggles and successes. Bringing a group of parents together to learn about the complexities of giftedness and twice exceptionality results in amazing connections and insights. Parent workshops offer support, education and connection in a safe environment.

Intellect and ability, often how giftedness is defined, does not begin to cover the multifaceted definition necessary to understand this population.

We begin with an in-depth look at giftedness; characteristics, myths and realities, strengths and challenges.

  • How does it feel to walk around with heightened sensitivities and awareness?
  • What is it like to know expectations are always high for you?
  • Why can gifted kids seem so advanced academically but chronologically behind socially or emotionally?

During this two and a half hour workshop, parents will learn the answers to these questions and much more about giftedness and 2e. Participants will view Tom Ropelewski’s award winning documentary, “2e: Twice Exceptional” and engage in a lively discussion and question/answer period after the film.
