Gifted children (and adults) are emerging as one of the highest at-risk populations for misdiagnosis, mis-medication and ineffective interventions in education, medicine and mental health. It is only through an interdisciplinary understanding of the unique characteristics and needs of this population, that positive outcomes can be achieved.

This one-day conference is designed for professionals that serve the gifted population including mental health professionals, school psychologists, social workers, education specialists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nurses and parents.
