    1. Join Gerald Aungst on October 21st at 7:00pm as he discusses “Beyond Engagement: Activating Curiosity and Creativity in Gifted Students”.
      • On the first day of Kindergarten, the children who step into our school are bursting with creativity and curiosity about the world. Then we systematically train them to ignore or suppress those drives and instead focus on what we want them to learn.
      • With so much emphasis on accountability, achievement, and career readiness, it is easy to let creativity and curiosity get pushed to the back of the line. But these are crucial aspects of all learning, particularly for gifted learners. In this engaging session, learn what science has to say about creative and curious people, and find out how parents and teachers can create an environment at school and at home that activates these qualities and allows them to thrive, even when the curriculum may not.

  4. They’re All Going to Find Out I’m a Fraud!” Combatting Impostor Syndrome
    • Dr. Matthew J. Zakreski hosts this 60 minute session where he discusses Impostor Syndrome. Impostor Syndrome is a psychological pattern where a person doubts their fitness, devalues their accomplishments, and fears being “discovered to be fraud.” It is a common pattern in individuals with a gifted brain and can be intensely dysregulating and unpleasant. Impostor Syndrome is created by a maladaptive pattern of cognition and social comparison that can have negative impacts on academic performance, social skills, activity engagement, and self-esteem. This session will define Impostor Syndrome, explore some symptoms of it both internally and externally, and give techniques on how to blunt its impact.
  5. The Importance of Grit and How to Foster It In Our Gifted Kids
    1. Dr. Melissa Durtschi hosts this 60 minute session where she discusses foster grit with gifted children. Raising Gifted kids can be exhausting most days. I have noticed over the years that teaching my own children and other students the importance of GRIT and the reasons behind it have helped tremendously in working through their life challenges. You see, our Gifted kids feel emotions and life in general so strongly that it can easily overwhelm them. Some want things to be perfect and freeze because of fear. Some underachieve because they don’t have the grit techniques and skills to persevere. Join Dr. Durtschi for a webinar dedicated to this idea of GRIT and how to foster it in our Gifted kids.
  6. Dr. Matthew Zakreski discuses, “Riding Out the Storm: Managing Emotional Intensity in Gifted Children”
    • Gifted kids are well-known for being emotionally intense. This intensity can be disruptive to learning, to socializing, and to the development of self-esteem. Emotional intensity can be disruptive to entire families, leaving us at a loss on how to best support our kids. This webinar will focus on simple, research-driven techniques that help us as caregivers to help children identify and regulate their emotions.
