Understanding Twice-Exceptional Learners with Wendy Behrens

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM MST

Boulder Valley School District and Boulder Valley Gifted & Talented proudly hosts nationally-renowned gifted expert Wendy Behrens, M.A.Ed.!

Gifted students with disabilities, known as twice-exceptional learners, are at-risk when their instructional and social and emotional needs are not recognized and supported. These co-occurring conditions occur in an estimated one third of all gifted learners. While identification of these learners is challenging for even the most experienced education professional, understanding the unique strengths and challenges of twice-exceptional learners will help prepare practitioners and parents as they work to meet those needs. This virtual presentation looks at the needs and lived experiences of students who have exceptional strengths and learning disabilities.

Following the presentation, there will be a live online discussion led by BVSD’s GT Coordinator, Dr. Michelle DuBois.

Terry Bradley: “Social-Emotional Aspects of Giftedness”

Kids who are gifted not only think differently, they also feel differently. Growing up gifted is a qualitatively different experience. It is important not only to be aware of their greater academic or creative capabilities, but also to be cognizant of their unique emotional capacities and complexities. This event will be an opportunity for families of children who are gifted to meet, encourage, and support one another. Educators are welcome to share and learn, as well!

We've launched a new experience!
