The Social and Emotional Development of Giftedness: What Do We Know?

Join us for this virtual presentation by Dr. Jane Leppien




Because of characteristics associated with giftedness (e.g., sensitivity, intensity, perceptiveness, overexcitabilities, advancement in certain talent areas, advanced moral development) some students experience their social and emotional development quite differently. These characteristics may contribute to challenges they face with same age peers, siblings, and in the home and school environments. It is important that parents, educators, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists be informed about the affective development of these students and aware of strategies to provide for their positive growth. Come join us for an interactive conversation!

When: Monday, January 11, 2021

Time: 6-7:30 p.m. (presentation 6-7, Q&A 7-7:30)
