Presentation on Gifted Children, with Q&A

March 9 @ 13 h 30 min - 14 h 30 min

Our partner Caring for gifted children comes to us to present her work and answer questions about Gifted children. The presentation is in English to not limit parents that do not feel comfortable in French but Marion is French, multilingual and help families from different backgrounds.


Gifted children often experience challenges related to their intensity, their uncommonness, and their excitability in many arenas (intellectual, emotional, imaginational, sensual, and/or physical). But first, we need to ask ‘What is a gifted child?’ – as many myths surround them.

I invite you to join me for this one-hour presentation where you can learn about the gifted population, and why it is important to cater to her needs in the same way as we cater to those of special needs’ children.
I will introduce my approach, what problems I help solve, and what families whom I support can achieve. And, there will be a special space for questions.

This introduction to giftedness is open to any adult willing to explore this subject, whether they live with a gifted child or not.
If you parent a gifted child, you are welcome to come with a relative or a friend so this person can have a clearer understanding of your child’s reality!
