Helping Twice Excetional Students Manage Stress and Anxiety (March 18)

Many twice exceptional children struggle with anxiety, stress and worry. What can parents do to help? Join us to learn 6 simple, practical strategies that empower these children to cope.

Enhancing Exceutive Functioning While Having Fun as a Family (March 25)

Twice exceptional children often have difficulties with executive functions. As a result, they are disorganized, have difficulty paying attention, give up on difficult tasks and struggle to finish assignments. Strengthening executive functions doesn’t have to be dry drill work. It can be fun and games! In this session, we will discuss ways parents can use games and play to strengthen executive functions while affirming family bonds.
