“Red, Purple But Never Pastel:  The Nature and Needs of Gifted Kids”

Notice your child exhibits intensity, boredom, and is continually seeking equitableness? Ms. Fischer will help you gain insights on the social/emotional traits of giftedness; video clips offering common misconceptions; considerations of how social/emotional traits affect high ability kids; and strategies for working with kids to fulfill their personal needs along with their talents.
