Heart as Well as Head: How Families Support the Social-Emotional Needs of Gifted Learners

The social-emotional side of gifted learners is sometimes overlooked, because of the focus on academic achievement. Yet without attention to their social and emotional lives, gifted learners don't reach their potential. Dr. Elissa F. Brown, Director of the Hunter College Gifted Center and Distinguished Lecturer at Hunter's School of Education, will speak about the links between Hunter students' emotional development and their academic achievement. She will also answer questions and discuss strategies that families can use to support their gifted children.
