Understand your child’s unique needs

Bright and Quirky kids are also called twice exceptional or 2e because both their high intellectual potential and brain-based challenges are two exceptions to the norm.

This unique brain wiring could make your child one of the greatest
contributors, thinkers or innovators of our time.

MEET YOUR HOST

Dear Friends,

If you’ve been raising a bright & quirky child, I know it’s not always easy. “2e” kids make up less than 1% of the population under 18, and that is why it’s so hard to figure out the best way to meet their needs, or to find professionals who truly “get” them.

The heartache of being different academically, socially or emotionally is real. My goal is to help remove the obstacles to your child’s success and help them see their unique greatness by providing insights and practical strategies from leading experts in the fields of childhood giftedness, ADHD, autism, anxiety and learning differences. Together we can help your child realize his or her greatest potential.

I hope you find the summit valuable. I’m honored to have you here.

Warmly,

Debbie Steinberg Kuntz, LMFT
Founder, Bright & Quirky

Debbie is a licensed marriage and family therapist with a private practice near Seattle, specializing in bright & quirky kids and families. She has a BA from Middlebury College and Masters degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University. She is also mom to two teenage boys.

This Summit was brilliantly conceived and executed!

Kudos to you! Thank you for such an informative series. Even as a psychiatrist, there were so many nuggets for me to take away to use with my own children and patients who have “bright and quirky” kids.

Summit 2018 Attendee

I cannot thank you enough for this invaluable information

Your thoughtful questions have guided the interviews into just the right areas. What a lifeline to a struggling parents. Light bulbs going off all over the place. Seriously,
THANK YOU!!

Summit 2018 Attendee

In just one day you’ve changed my thinking and worldview.

We heard not only the “whats” (to do, to consider, to explore) but also the hows and the whys. And I’ve been introduced to many new resources as well.

Summit 2018 Attendee

This has been INCREDIBLE!

I am so grateful Debbie, for this summit. I am new to this as a parent and have been exhaustively searching for tools, resources, support, etc., for my gifted son.

Summit 2018 Attendee

So many amazing speakers! Life changing!!!!
I started watching this amazing summit to learn more on how to help my bright autistic 3 year daughter. I ended up learning a lot for myself also. This summit has encouraged me to get help, not only for myself but also so my family can thrive and I can give my daughter 150% of me. Thank you for putting it together.

Summit 2018 Attendee

These interviews are absolutely transformative!

I signed up in the beginning out of curiosity but these interviews are absolutely mind blowing and transformative! I now also have a better appreciation for 2e kids. It’s not a “bad” thing, just different (in an exciting way.)

Summit 2018 Attendee

This summit has helped me immeasurably.

It has been informative, validating, stimulating and evangelizing. It has established for me at least a community who have shared in an Epiphany of Child Rearing when doubt and gloom were pervasive. It introduced us to a world of experts we would have foundered trying to learn about and from.
