Programme Objectives

Parents are able to
- Acquire basic conceptions of giftedness, human development and exceptionalities 

- Recognize and be aware the developmental needs of 2e students at targeted age range
- Adopt a strength-based approach to embrace difficulties arise
- Develop a better sense to upgrade their own parenting style and be their child’s advocate
(Note: Participated parents are expected to engage in interactive and reflective activities throughout the talk.)

Programme Outline

2e (twice-exceptional) students encounter different opportunities as well as challenges along the life journey. Parents are the essential “cheer leaders” of the child to celebrate the success and embrace the ups and downs.

Integrating basic conceptions of giftedness, human developmental needs and traits of exceptionalities (ASD / ADHD), the instructor will share practical tips and examples of targeted age groups to delineate how parents can adopt a strength-based approach, be aware the masking effects and realize potential, address the child’s changing needs, upgrading own parenting styles and be the child’s advocate. 

We welcome parents of 2e child / teen (diagnosed / not yet diagnosed / suspected) to join us to enhance our knowledge, skills, attitude and values to embrace our beautiful next generation.
