Conferences for 2e Adults

Sometimes adults discover their giftedness or ‘2e-ness’ late in life. An aha moment occurs from reading or listening to an expert talk about twice exceptionality and suddenly so much about their childhood and current life makes more sense. It can be lonely when you feel misunderstood and don’t even understand yourself! 2e Adults are seeking personal and professional fulfillment. With that as our lens, we create conferences for 2e Adults addressing topics like, burnout and bore out, ADHD, anxiety, imposter syndrom, sex, understanding narcissism, assessments and advocacy and so much more.

Conferences for Educators

Teaching 2e students can be frustrating and rewarding. Our conferences provide information to support educators in bringing out the best and raising self confidence in twice exceptional learners. With topics like, managing transitions, emotion regulation, teaching to the strength, executive functioning, imposter syndrome, understanding social emotional needs, parent/teacher communication, and so many more, teachers walk away with deepened understanding and classroom strategies they can implement today. Our conferences are on-demand because we want educators to “watch what they want, when they want!” Credit hours offered.
