School Reluctance/refusal

Facilitated by Victoria Poulos, a panel discussion including a psychologist, parent and past student.

School refusal is a common struggle for gifted children which may stem from a variety of factors, including perfectionism, asynchronous development, heightened sensitivity, social anxiety and mismatched educational environments. During the session, we will hear from a psychologist, a parent and a gifted young adult and will explore the crossover between giftedness and school refusal. By examining the underlying causes, identifying early warning signs, and discussing effective strategies for prevention and intervention we can better support our young gifted students.This informative session is primarily for parents, but is equally helpful for educators and well-being coordinators
