Gifted Support Group: Homeschooling Considerations

February 28 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Homeschooling Considerations for Gifted and Twice-Exceptional Families

An In-Person Talk, Q&A and opportunity to meet other parents at IEA

Speaker: Kasi Peters, MT-BC

Held in-person at 569 S. Marengo Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101
Please RSVP as space is limited

Parents of gifted and twice-exceptional children devote considerable time searching for the right academic and social-emotional educational fit; often touring various types of schools along the way. Join Kasi Peters on a tour of homeschooling as she discusses the specific considerations for neurodiverse families. She will discuss the pros and cons of homeschooling, the social aspects as well as various homeschooling philosophies and help you determine if homeschooling is a viable option for your family (hint: it often can be). This discussion is for you if you are curious about homeschooling, or a veteran homeschooler looking for some fresh insight.
