About the event

THIS EVENT IS BEING HOSTED BY THE HOMESCHOOL GATHERING PLACE. 

REGISTRATION IS LIMITED.

Do  you have a student who already mastered algebra and wants to take high  school physics and computer science years early? Is your child reading  Jane Eyre but falls apart when asked to write an outline? Is it feeling  impossible to get your student a class at her level? Is your once  happy-to-learn student now resistant? All of these behaviors are  indications of giftedness, and homeschooling your gifted child can be  daunting, especially as they approach the teen years. We are here to  help!

This talk is for anyone currently homeschooling or  considering homeschooling who is feeling overwhelmed at teaching a  gifted student  in grades 6-12. We will discuss what it means to be  gifted, how to recognize it in your children (and yourself), how  giftedness can lead to struggles in learning, especially with anxiety,  perfectionism, and procrastination, and we will offer a variety of  options for finding classes, curricula, and other peers for tween and  teen students who are outpacing the typical classroom.

Free, but registration required. Limited to 20 participants.

Seminar is held live at the store.

Led  by Allison Coates. Allison is a homeschooling mother of 3 gifted  students who previously worked in schools to help them meet the needs of  gifted students. She is co-founder of BRIGHTLinks, a 501(c)3 whose  mission is to create opportunities for emotional, social, and  intellectual growth in gifted children.
