About The Event

Self-efficacy,  self-concept, self-competency, and expectancy beliefs have been found to affect student motivation. Additionally, strong interpersonal relationships between teachers and students increases students’ motivation and sense of belonging in school, helping them to take on more challenging academic endeavors. Finally, increased academic motivation has also been tied to parental involvement and support. Participants will explore characteristics  of students who are gifted with special needs, including their developmental traits, vulnerabilities, and diversity issues. Additionally, an introduction to current educational approaches and guidance will be discussed.
