GERRIC October Parent Course. Underachievement: How to help your child reach their full potential

Presenter: Ruth Philips

This specialised Parent Course is an opportunity to explore the topic of Underachievement in more depth than what is possible in the Beginners Parent Course.  This workshop follows on and builds on the Beginner's Parent Course, however it is not necessary to have attended the Beginner's Course to participate.  It will cover what the research on underachivement says, developing self-regulation and growth mindset, school and why context matters.

Parents of gifted children are in a unique situation. Often, the advanced development of the abilities of a gifted child outpaces the child’s physical or emotional development, resulting in frustration for both parent and child. It is common for parents of gifted children to feel confused about the educational needs of their gifted child, and GERRIC’s parent programming aims to address these concerns and challenges. Our parent workshops provide an opportunity for parents to develop a greater understanding of their gifted child’s needs, to interact with other parents of gifted children and to learn from current research and experts in the field of gifted education.
