Parents Work Shop - 17th July 2008
Coping With School and Your Gifted Child
(and other tricky questions!)
- How do you tell the school you think your child might be gifted without them thinking you’re a pushy parent?
- What can you do if they won’t listen?
- What if you’re not sure – how can you tell if they are gifted?
- How can you respond to a teacher who does not give your child challenging work?
- How can you help your child at home?
- Should you be worried if your child spends lots of time alone?
This is a practical workshop for parents who know or suspect they have a gifted child. This is your chance to ask your own tricky questions! This is your chance to get clear and supportive answers from someone who has a wealth of information about gifted children and wants you to be able to help your children grow and learn.
