UAGC Virtual Winter Symposium
Featuring Emily Kircher-Morris
February 10, 2023
Session 1: 9:30 - 11:30 AM
Creating a Neurodiversity-Affirming School
Twice-exceptional (2e) learners are both gifted and have another neurodivergent diagnosis (like autism, ADHD, or a learning disability) and need support for both their advanced cognitive abilities and areas of struggle. Drawing from experiences as a gifted education teacher and clinical mental health counselor, Emily will synthesize what we know about twice-exceptional learners to help teachers develop an awareness of how they can best help their 2e students find success academically, socially, and emotionally by creating a neurodiversity-affirming classroom environment.
Session 2 12:30 - 2:30 PM
For the Love of Learning
Teachers and parents have been searching for a way to ignite passion and motivation in kids for years. How is it that gifted and 2e kids, many who have incredible strengths and abilities, struggle with basic motivation? The secret to motivation is deeper than a growth mindset, and drive isn't as black-and-white as intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation. Through this presentation, Emily shares the three ingredients needed for self-regulated motivation. Implementing these steps helps our learners harness their motivation, leaving us on the sideline to watch them soar.
