Beyond IQ

Beyond IQ - A Conference About and For Highly and Profoundly Gifted Children

On April 27th -29th, at the Sheraton Colonial in Wakefield, there will be a conference for parents and educators of highly and profoundly gifted children.  The keynote speaker, Aleene Nielson, is a past Librarian of the Year and Teacher of the Year in Utah, as well as co-author of Curriculum Design and Teaching Strategies for Gifted Learners, with June Maker.  In addition, there will be presenters from across the continent, including Sue Jackson of the Daimon Institute in British Columbia.

On Friday, pre-conference half-day workshops will be conducted for teachers, administrators, and mental health professionals, with an eye toward putting theory into practice and dealing with the toughest issues.  Leaders of the sessions will have a mix of public school and private practice experience.

Saturday and Sunday are filled with presentations for both the family and the professional.  Much of the attention will be on those aspects of the children that don't fit neatly into the academic milieu.  In addition to the program for the adults, there are two additional components to the conference.  There will be sessions for 6 - 12 year old children on both Saturday and Sunday, with appropriate hands-on and intellectual activities supplemented by physical activities.  There is also a program for those in their teens and twenties, with topics directed to their particular needs.
