“Gifted Kids: Tips for Raising and Educating Happy, Successful Children”

An Evening with Dr. Jim Delisle, International Gifted & Talented Education Expert

Adults who support gifted children and teens have many questions about how best to meet their intellectual and emotional needs.  They want to know:

  • what giftedness is and the label’s impact on the child and other family members.
  • how to set expectations that are appropriate and balanced.
  • how to juggle the wide range of emotional intensities that often accompanies growing up gifted.

This session addresses these and other issues that ‘come with the territory’ in supporting gifted kids.  This lecture will appeal to parents and educators alike and is sponsored by the PEAKS Program in the Bozeman Public Schools.

Wednesday, January 18, 7:00 pm
Hagar Auditorium at the Museum of the Rockies
FREE admission  – all are welcome
