Event description

Description

NOTE: This workshop will run concurrently with Option B "Workshop on Dual Differentiation" with combined sessions for the Keynote and Panel Q&A sessions.


Workshop Program for the Day:


Keynote: The unique needs of the twice-exceptional student: Balancing Home & School

This keynote address will answer the questions: Who are 2e students and what do they need? Topics included will explore the challenging world of 2e students and what happens when advanced abilities collide and co-exist with learning challenges.


"Keeping the light in their eyes" Part 1 (1.5 hrs)

This workshop will provide strategies for parents to better understand how they can best support cognitive, social and emotional growth in their child. They will begin to shift their focus from "fixing" what appears to be wrong with their child to a healthy recognition of what might be possible and enjoyable.


"Keeping the Light in their eyes" part 2 (1.5 hours)

This workshop will kelp participants recognise, practice and use conversation strategies to help students become engaged, productive and happy learners. Participants will engage through MyLearningPrint


PLUS Q&A Panel Discussion with Susan and Robin
