Dianne’s presentation will focus on perfectionism and building strong school/parent relationships. She will discuss what the latest research tells us about perfectionism and gifted students, how to support maladaptive perfectionism and the need for struggle as a part of this process. She will also talk about ways to foster a positive home-school relationship from both school and parent/carer’s perspectives. Dianne is happy to take questions, though it would be great if they could be emailed beforehand and if time permits, will take some on the day. Please email your questions to
