Emerson School, 5425 Scio Church Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48103, USAMore
Presenters: Lisa Woodcock-Burroughs, Ph.D. and Anne Carlson Psy.D, from the Center for Neuropsychology, Learning, and Development
As a follow-up to Emerson's screening of the film Normal Isn't Real, Dr. Lisa Woodcock-Burroughs, Ph.D. and Anne Carlson Psy.D, from the Center for Neuropsychology, Learning, and Development, invite you to learn hands-on strategies to support the emotional development of gifted children who may also be struggled with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, or emotional challenges such as anxiety or depression. Such children are typically identified as “twice exceptional” in the research literature.
This talk will provide specific strategies that parents can use to bolster their child’s emotional development and foster resilience. Many of the strategies that will be covered will also apply to children, whether or not they are twice-exceptional, in promoting development of emotional competence.
