Monroe-Woodbury Parents Advocating Gifted Education, Inc. invites you to attend a special presentation by Carolyn Kottmeyer, the nationally recognized gifted resources expert, founder and director of the Hoagies’ Gifted Education Page* who will speak on: Beyond Academics: Social and Emotional Needs of the Gifted.
Is the gifted child different from other children? Yes! Social development, emotional maturity, friends, peers, introvert/extravert, and more. The gifted child’s asynchronous development is not just academic. But their needs are not so different: they need to be accepted for who and what they are. How can we accomplish this, both at home and in school?
Parents, educators, professionals, and anyone who supports gifted individuals of all ages, diversities and abilities, will benefit from “Mrs. Hoagies” knowledge and expertise.
