If you’re a follower of mine, you know I love talking up events led by experts in all facets of the gifted and 2e experience. The insights and advice these folks share with the world are amazing – and their mission is so strong that they provide a lot of it for free.
Another resource that I haven’t mentioned before (except in emails to my subscribers) is Bright & Quirky, an amazing online program for parents of twice-exceptional kids, led by founder Debbie Steinberg Kuntz, who is a licensed marriage and family therapist.
About six months after I was told my son has social anxiety and that he’s highly gifted, I came across Bright & Quirky’s inaugural online summit.
The program’s name alone grabbed my attention. (Isn’t it perfect?)
The summit more than delivered
I was so blown away by Debbie’s online interviews (Michelle Garcia Winner, anyone?) that I became a paying member of Bright & Quirky’s IdeaLab group.
And let me tell you, Debbie and her team bring their A Game every.single.week. They love helping these misunderstood kiddos and their misunderstood parents. You can see it in Debbie’s eyes every time she speaks, and in her team members’ comments on the IdeaLab’s private Facebook page.
A new series with more top-notch speakers
Now Debbie and her team have orchestrated a free Smart but Struggling Student Series. It’s a five-part series that begins Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Event registrants will receive a new episode (via email) for five consecutive weeks. Each video will be a deep dive with various masters. Not only will the insights, tools and strategies that these experts describe be helpful at home, they’ll be ideal for sharing with our kids’ teachers.
Is that awesomesauce or what?
What’s more, the lineup is just as amazing as the online summit. In fact, I interviewed one of the experts (neuroscientist Nicole Tetreault) for my Understanding the Gifted Child’s Brain story.
Executive function guru Seth Perler, who I talked about last month, is another speaker, as is author Jonathan Mooney. (I’ve loved Jonathan since watching this inspiring, never-give-up speech on Goalcast.)
