Event Description:

The Gift-a-Palooza conference is a LIVE 3-day online celebration of being a neurdivergent individual over a lifetime. It is dedicated to bringing a deeper look at the issues, challenges and joys of the gifted and multi-exceptional individual over their life span.

Gifted and Thriving are thrilled to join you in this 3 day journey of learning, where we have brought together over 30 TOP experts in this field to share their knowledge with YOU and our communities.

Presentation Description:

Does your 2E child or teen have a tough time starting and completing things they have to do? Many professionals and educators who work with these kids and parents who live with them feel frustrated and thwarted in their efforts to teach responsibility, motivation and follow through. You want to make sure that your child has the executive functioning skills they need to succeed in life but you can’t seem to work together towards your goals.

Dr. Sharon Saline believes that successfully motivating kids who are out-of-the-box thinkers relies on using a strength-based, collaborative approach. When you include them in creating solutions to daily challenges, you increase their buy-in and their motivation. Participants will learn how to create and use strategies to teach all-important executive functioning skills that increase personal accountability and foster independence.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the executive functioning skills that affect motivation.
  • Describe how to teach goal-directed persistence, time management, and organizational skills that stick.
  • Understand how to create meaningful, collaborative incentives.
  • Create effective routines and help kids make positive long and short-term choices.

Full Event: February 3-5, 2022
