Supporting your Child’s Gifts & Talents All Summer Long

Whether your child just received an admissions letter for a Gifted & Talented program this fall, is currently in a G&T program, or simply in need of more enriching talent development opportunities, join P.A.L. for Supporting Your Child’s Gifts & Talents: A Talent Development Roundtable on Tuesday, June 12 at 6:30 pm.

Don’t miss a rare opportunity to hear experts Janine Caffrey, author of Nurturing Brilliance: Discovering and Developing your Child’s Gifts and Hollingworth’s Heather Pinedo-Burns as they explore ways for parents to support the strengths and talent areas of their children.

Come get an actionable list of things you can do throughout the summer and every day to support your child’s strength areas. Multiple intelligences and talent development will also be the focus of the experts.

Parents will lend concrete recommendations of local NYC-based resources, activities, events, and summer enrichment programs for your child to stay connected with peers and have hands-on learning opportunities throughout the summer. Plus, meet other like-minded parents at this informal session for elementary school parents.

Seating is limited, so register now for our last FREE event this Spring.

    Might I recommend reading Your Child’s Strengths as a book on how to discover and develop the strengths in all children.

      Thank you. A great recommendation, Your Child’s Strengths by Jenifer Fox. We have contacted her about a future P.A.L. event and will keep you posted.
