The 2016 NYC Gifted & Talented Symposium & Benefit— one day to invest in your child’s future—is a day long symposium presented by PALNYC at the New York Law School that will kickoff the inaugural NYC G&T + 2E Week and help parents and educators support the cognitive, social and emotional development of NYCs high potential youth. Explore the pre-K through 8th grade educational landscape in NYC, programs that cater to the talents and strengths of G&T learners, and learn ways you can support your child’s unique strengths and interests through local and online programs and innovative Ed Tech resources.
The 2016 Keynote
Don’t miss the keynote, Finding Nourishment for Advanced Learners in Today’s Educational Desert by Dr. Elaine Tuttle Hansen, the executive director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, who has devoted her career to the education of bright young minds and the pursuit of academic excellence.
At CTY, which now offers summer and family academic programming in NYC, in addition to its residential, day, online, and travel programs, Hansen has led initiatives designed to foster the continued growth and evolution of the organization in key areas including access and inclusion, talent identification and development, international advisory services, and public advocacy for the needs of pre-collegiate students with high academic potential. She has promoted a reinvigorated research program devoted both to the basic science that can expand our understanding of advanced learners and the translational work that connects evidence-based studies with practice. Learn more about Dr. Hansen’s achievements and accolades here.
The NYC Gifted & Talented Symposium & Benefit includes topics on talent development, social & emotional development and how to navigate the practical matters for parents and educators of NYCs high potential youth, including: What is Gifted? Understanding Identification; Intro to the Social & Emotional Needs of High Ability Youth; Genius: Then, Now, Tomorrow- Literacy & STEM Curriculum; Supporting Culturally Diverse, High Ability Kids; Providing Rigor and Relevance in the Classroom; The Flip Side of Gifted: Uneven, Unmotivated & Anxious and much more.
