NWGCA Speaker – Working with ‘Twice-Exceptional’ (2e) children
March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST
It’s hard to imagine that a gifted child could have learning disabilities, and yet is often the case. Gifted students are just as likely as any other student to struggle with ADHD, dyslexia, sensory-processing, or a litany of other learning challenges. The interaction of giftedness and learning disabilities in a child’s growth creates an extremely complex challenge for parents and educators alike.
On Thursday, March 5, a speaker from Northwest Gifted Child Association (NWGCA) will discuss the characteristics and needs of twice-exceptional children (those who are gifted and also have a learning challenge) and what parents can do to support those needs. The event will be held at the Maple Valley public library from 7-8pm.
NWGCA is one of the region’s foremost advocates supporting gifted and highly capable children. They provide consulting for individual district parent groups, run educational seminars and workshops, and are even called upon to speak at Washington State legislative hearings.
