SESSION 1: Ken Schuster PsyD | Getting Your Bright & Quirky Child's Needs Met in School

Talk Description, Speaker Bio, and Resources

Parents of 2e kids all know how difficult it can be to navigate the school system and to advocate for the needs of our very bright and quirky kids. Dr. Schuster carefully lays out a roadmap for both understanding and navigating this process. In his information packed talk, he answers pressing parent questions like:

  • Where should parents start when kids begin to have trouble in school.
  • What if my child needs both gifted ed, and special ed?
  • How do I know what school environment is right for my child, and how do I know when it’s time for a change?
  • What key players should I recruit to be on our “team” of advocates, and what roles will they play?
