Dr. Jim Delisle, presenter and author, is a leading expert on gifted children's intellectual and emotional growth.  At this event Dr. Delisle will discuss the unique needs parents of gifted children face: 

  • What are the best ways to meet gifted children’s intellectual and emotional needs?
  • How can parents best advocate for gifted children in a school setting mired in “bringing up the bottom” rather than “raising the bar” at the top?
  • What are appropriate, attainable goals and expectations?
  • How can parents best juggle the wide range of emotional intensities that often “come with the territory” in raising gifted kids?


While parents will attend a session with Dr. Jim Deslile, students ages 5-12 will engage in creative, engaging projects!
