Western Australia's association for gifted support, advocacy and resources
Come along to this interactive professional learning event where Amanda Rogers will walk you through using different tools to assist in embracing mistakes. She will explain the process she went through to adapt these for her own children and students as well as the positive impact found.
Amanda will be speaking from the perspective of a recently identified 2E adult and the parent of two 2E children who have both been challenged by varying aspects of closed mindsets and perfectionism. She has developed her own personalised resources to help support her children by adapting ideas and concepts found in:
Starving the Anger Gremlin for Children Aged 5-9: A Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Workbook on Anger Management - Kate Collins-Donnelly
Starving the Anxiety Gremlin for Children Aged 5-9: A Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Workbook on Anxiety Management - Kate Collins-Donnelly
