Lin Lim, PhD and Adam Laningham, M.Ed Present “SEL: Home, Home Education, School & Beyond”
The emotional well-being of our children has always been important and often overlooked. It plays a larger crucial role for outlier gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) children. Gifted and 2e children often process and experience the world around them deeply. Outlier children often experience greater psychosocial dissonance. Many families benefit from a better understanding of the variations in gifted and 2e traits which then informs appropriate and effective psychosocial supports. Join the president and president elect of SENG to better understand the significance of our children’s emotional health, the impact of trauma, and broaden your strategies toolbox to support them both at home, in home education, in school, and beyond. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and answering your questions!
