Hilary Thomas’ Presentation on Social-Emotional issues
Please join us for our March meeting:
Monday March 11, 2013 â€“ 6:30-8:00 p.m.
at the Shepard Center, 873 Walcutt Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43219 (MAPS)
Join fellow parents of gifted students, and guests, as we discuss The Social & Emotional Needs of Kids Identified as Gifted & Talented
Hillary Thomas, M.Ed. of Nationwide Childrenâ€™s Hospital will be on hand to discuss this critical and often controversial topic with the group.
- How do you know if your child is truly being challenged?
- How do you balance acceleration with developmental realities?
- How does this “identification” really affect our children?
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to participate in the discussion with others going through just what you are! Ask those questions that have been nagging at you! Come hear what our gifted educators have to say from the front-lines of this issue as well.
We will have child care at this meeting. Your child is welcome to bring a favorite book or game â€“ or homework!
We are a community of parents, grandparents, guardians and families working to help gifted children shine. We know the frustrations, the joys and the intensity of raising a gifted child and we support all those who are on this difficult and wonderful journey.
