SENGinar: Consideration for Gifted and 2E Assessment
Time & Location
Jan 18, 2022, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM EST
About The Event
Getting an assessment for giftedness and/or twice-exceptionality can offer great information and insights into your or your child’s needs, but can also be a big investment and there are many things to consider in pursuing the right fit for an evaluator and type(s) of evaluation. Having educationally evaluated, and reviewed evaluations as a school psychologist for nearly 20 years, I have had the opportunity to see a variety of reports and learned a lot about what to look out for in an evaluation with gifted and 2E individuals.
In this talk, I will discuss:
- Questions to ask before pursuing an evaluation.
- Types of gifted and 2E Assessments.
- Considerations for student and adult evaluations
About the Presenter:
After years of feeling “too much,” Aurora Holtzman finally realized that intensity is the source of her greatest power. Now instead of beating herself up about not measuring up to her own self-imposed standards, she is on a mission to help gifted and outside-the-box thinkers befriend their brains and use their fire without getting burned through her Embracing Intensity Podcast and community, coaching, and strengths-based educational assessment. Aurora uses her personal experience as a twice exceptional mom, educator and individual to help others to better understand their extreme strengths and challenges.
