INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN
A Dialogue about Education for Parents of Accelerated Learners
The Workshop Series
The P.A.L. monthly workshop series helps parents of accelerated learners understand important topics relevant to their young child’s cognitive, social & emotional development. Experts and practitioners in the field of gifted and talented education and parent advocates will join our panel for a dialogue with you about educating and nurturing these unique learners.
Workshop #5 – TUESDAY, JUNE 12, 2012, 6:30-8:00 pm
Supporting Your Child’s Gifts and Talents All Summer Long
Experts Janine Caffrey, author of Nurturing Brilliance: Discovering and Developing your Child’s Gifts and Hollingworth’s Heather Pinedo-Burns will explore ways for parents to support the strengths and talent areas of their children. Come get an actionable list of things you can do this summer and every day to support your child’s strength areas. Multiple intelligences and talent development will be the focus of the experts.
Plus, following our speakers, meet other like-minded parents at our first G&T Speedsourcing event, an informal opportunity for parents to share tried & true recommendations of local NYC-based resources, activities, events and summer enrichment programs for your child to stay connected with peers and have hands-on learning opportunities throughout the summer. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss great school recommendations, afterschool programs, summer camps, tutors, mentors, museums, books for kids, books for adults, conferences, meet-up groups—anything that has your seal of approval from first-hand experience. And who knows what could come of it; your kid might have a new playdate or peer mate.
