Beyond IQ: Boston

Paradoxes and Oxymorons
in the Lives of Highly and Profoundly Gifted Children

May 3, 4 & 5, 2002


In 2001, more than 100 teachers, parents, children, and young adults came together in Wakefield, Massachusetts and had a wonderfully enriching weekend. The Beyond IQ conference was a multi-faceted experience including workshops, keynotes, activities (for kids and/or grownups), and networking. We are returning to the Sheraton Colonial on May 3, 4 & 5 for a bigger and better time.
