Course Overview

Gifted in the Elementary Classroom professional development course
The gifted student is often the most misunderstood child in a classroom. Many teachers have gifted students in their class but often are at a loss as to how to best work with them to meet their needs.
In this course, “Gifted for the Elementary Child,” we will explore several issues regarding the gifted child including – who is the gifted child, why do they need extra support, how you can help them achieve their potential, and how to work with parents of gifted children.
If you are a parent of a gifted child or a teacher, this professional development course will give you valuable information for working with your children to achieve their full potential.
