MCGT 2022 Fall Speaker Series

Signs your child might need a 504 or IEP: 
What every parent should know

Saturday, September 24th, 9:00-11:00am

via Zoom

Robbi Weil,
Tina Van Erp, M.Ed, The River Coach

Supported by: Bloomington Chapter of MCGT

We are grateful for the Bloomington Chapter support of this event which makes it possible for MCGT members to attend free. 

Gifted and talented learners have learning differences, some have health impairments, specific learning disabilities, or ASD or even all of the above.  Navigating school as a neurodivergent child and family can be difficult. These students are Both/And instead of Either/Or. Challenges for these children may not be identified early or easily. We’ll discuss when and how a 504 plan or an evaluation for an IEP is helpful in identifying and supporting a child’s strengths and growth areas.  Together we will learn steps necessary to support, advocate for and increase the autonomy of twice-exceptional, neurodivergent learners.

When: Saturday, September 24, 2022, 9-11am, Online via Zoom

Zoom link will be emailed the day before the event.

WhoAll those supporting an asynchronous/gifted/talented learner or neurodivergent students – parents, educators, other caregivers and professionals welcome!
