Gifted and Talented Parent Seminar
with Guest Speaker Dr. Blanche Kapushion
Thursday, March 16th, April 8th, 6:30-8:00 pm
Parenting the Whole Child
Parenting children is one of the greatest gifts, yet one of the greatest challenges you will experience. Children with exceptionalities add another layer to parenting opportunities. We will explore 8 “big ideas” of raising gifted children through an open dialogue and conversation format. In this seminar, you will have the opportunity to gain new insight, learn about new ideas to consider, and most of all make connections with other parents.
Open to the families of all Denver gifted students!
Hosted by Denver Association for Gifted and Talented.
