Essential STRATEGIES for 2e Students
The vast majority of schools were not built with our unique kids in mind --kids with amazing advanced abilities and at the same time, difficulties in learning, social, and/or emotional skills. Our kids are complex. They're nichey. Most teachers get little to no training in gifted, ADHD, autism, learning differences, or anxiety. Yet, there's a wealth of practical strategies that you and your child's teacher(s) need to know for your child to thrive in school. Too see what's included in this series click here.
