Supporting Gifted Twice Exceptional and High Ability Learners (90 Minutes)
Some gifted students also have learning difficulties, or a disability that effects their ability to engage in the classroom. The disabilities may be linked to speech, emotions, behavior or physical challenges. They may be due to autism spectrum or attention deficit, or they might be due to a specific learning challenge. This workshop will dissect the range of challenges and highlight some key priorities for working with these students in classrooms and schools. In most cases the support of these students should start with the gifts they possess.
