NWGCA Event: Fostering Social and Emotional Growth in 2e Children Through a Lens of Neurodiversity

October 4 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

$20

Summary

Gifted/2e children often struggle with issues related to social/emotional growth and/or regulation. As a result, large numbers of these students battle anxiety, stress, emotional regulation, social anxiety, and even have difficulty with executive functioning. This is due to asynchronous development related to intense sensory integration (epigenetics) that can easily overwhelm an already vulnerable limbic system. This session will outline the latest neuro research on the gifted/2e brain and how it affects the way twice-exceptional children engage in all factions of life including school, home, and the greater community.

Cost

$20 WA State Residents
