MCGT 2022 Fall Speaker Series

The Parenting Playbook

Saturday, November 5th, 9:00-11:00am

via Zoom

Presenter:  Emily Kircher-Morris, M.S., Author of Raising Twice Exceptional Children and host of The Neurodiversity Podcast

Supported by: Minnetonka Chapter of MCGT

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

If only raising gifted and twice-exceptional kids were as easy as everyone thinks! Parents of bright kids know that finding ways to coach their child to become an independent, confident, and successful individual is harder than most people realize. This session focuses on helping parents find neurodiversity-affirming strategies to support their gifted  or twice-exceptional children.

Emily Kircher-Morris, LPC, is the host of The Neurodiversity Podcast, which explores the psychological, educational, and social needs for enriching the lives of neurodivergent people. She is the author of two books related to the development of children and teens who are neurodivergent and cognitively gifted. “Teaching Twice-Exceptional Learners in Today's Classroom" (Free Spirit Publishing, 2021) focuses on supporting 2e learners in the educational setting, and "Raising Twice-Exceptional Children: A Handbook for Parents of Neurodivergent Gifted Kids" (Routledge, 01/22) is a guide for parents navigating the world of twice-exceptionality. She practices as a mental health counselor outside of St. Louis, Missouri.
