Sam Young, M.Ed. presents RS2e: Reimagining Socializing for Twice-Exceptional Students
Socializing has changed and continues to do so in the wake of the pandemic. While there are many confounding struggles that our students are facing daily, we must also recognize that socializing itself is transforming.
This presentation walks participants through a strength-based, talent-focused approach to supporting twice-exceptional and differently-wired students on their journey to connect with others in ways they feel happiest. The presentation takes participants on a journey through 10 research-based strategies to accomplish the 2 aforementioned goals.
Additionally, those who stay until the end will receive FREE BONUS resources to further student and parent growth at home!
LEARNING OUTCOMES: 1. Empower our kiddos to socialize successfully and sustainably 2. Encourage parents and educators to inventory and challenge preconceived ideas around socializing 3. Enable parents and educators to make a personal shift so that our students can thrive
