    Whether in elementary, middle, high school or college/university, rigorous courses can seem overwhelming to students. Bright students who don’t encounter academic challenge early in their educational career don’t know how to manage the workload and expectations of rigorous courses.


    Dr. Cash, an internationally recognized expert in gifted and advanced learning, will define the true nature of a rigorous course, what should be expected of the learner and what parents can do to support their child at home. You will gain ideas and strategies to help your child deal with stress, failure and learn how to live a balanced life.
