JUST BECAUSE YOUR BRIGHT CHILD LEARNS DIFFERENTLY DOESN’T
MEAN THEY’RE BAD, BROKEN OR DUMB (EVEN IF THEY FEEL THAT WAY)
Your child may be ‘twice exceptional’ or 2e:
2e kids are highly intelligent or advanced in certain areas (one exception to the norm) and at the same time, behind in certain areas like focus, learning, social/emotional or behavior (the second exception to the norm).
The problem is not your child or YOU! The problem is:
- Most school and medical systems focus solely on remediating weaknesses when, in reality, what really works is developing strengths, interests and talents, in addition to skill building challenge areas.
- Most teachers receive zero training in working with 2e kids and don’t know how to personalize their learning or accommodate the unique way their brains learn.
- Parents feel alone, scared and frustrated by the lack of services, support and information for their bright and quirky kids.
Let’s find your
bright child’s path to flow & thriving, even with ADHD, autism and/or learning differences
The truth is, the way your child’s brain is wired is, in many ways, an ADVANTAGE.
Our world desperately needs out-of-the-box thinkers with unique problem-solving abilities. Your child just needs the right supports in place to develop their expertise. Learn how!

"Absolutely INCREDIBLE! Bravo for setting these fantastic speakers up and providing and avenue for busy and taxed parents to attend. I have learned so much in a few hours than I have pouring over books and visiting multiple health professionals over the past few years. I’m watching this late due to illness, blessed it was still available. Thank you so much!!!"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve followed many of these experts for the last few years, but have still found new gems of wisdom in these talks. I have sticky notes with “a-ha” moments and memorable quotes piling up. This is great! Inspirational! I’m a better parent already."
-Julie, 2019 Summit
"This summit is the best online summit I have had the pleasure to attend. The caliber of expertise is amazing. The content so specific and spot on. I am a teacher of young gifted children. I am fortunate enough to teach at a progressive school who practices much of what has been said here. How wonderful to have such a rich resource for anyone who works with these amazing kids!"
-Laraine, 2019 Summit
Just believe in yourself. Even if you don't, pretend that you do and at some point, you will.
