In this thought-provoking presentation, you will explore the complex and often overlooked world of gifted and twice-exceptional (2E) children, who poss exceptional talents alongside learning or developmental challenges. Nina will delve into the crucial strategies and insights needed to support gifted and 2E children as they navigate the intricacies of anxiety and trauma. She will shed light on how these exceptional young minds can not only overcome adversity but also thrive and unleash their full potential.


Through a combination of sharing research findings, practical tools, and real-life stories, a comprehensive understanding of the challenges these children face will be provided, with the aim to provide guidance for educators, parents, and caregivers. Join us in this exploration of nurturing gifted and 2E children amid adversity, as we seek to empower them to soar.
