    About the Presentation:

    How can parents help children to take charge of their education, especially in times of ever-changing remote and hybrid learning environments? Empowering children with gifts and talents to take ownership and advocate for themselves provides them with essential keys to success in school and beyond. Strategies for helping children to understand their rights and responsibilities as learners, options, and opportunities will be explored. Parents will leave this session with tools and ideas to help their children gain a deeper understanding of themselves and to become effective self-advocates.

    Workshop Break-Out Sessions:

    Following the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to attend virtual, informal break-out sessions facilitated by members of the IAGC Education Committee to network, discuss, and explore topics related to this presentation.

    Deb Douglas consults and advocates for gifted students, specializing in workshops that help students take charge of their education.
