Summary of Presentation:
This webinar will show parents and teachers how to help their gifted students become Social & Emotional ACES. An ACE, of course, is a highly skilled expert. Becoming Social-Emotional ACES specifically targets the gifted concerns of Asynchrony, Social Skills, Emotional Resilience & Self-Esteem. This session reveals the foundation of how social and emotional issues commonly develop in gifted people. This understanding leads us to identify effective intervention strategies. It then proceeds to show us ten skill building steps to develop social & emotional core strength and flexibility–in essence, to becoming Social-Emotional ACES. Social and emotional needs are crucial to the well-being of gifted students and adults, yet are often their least met needs. When social and emotional needs are not met, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression,, discouragement and/or despair often follow.

Perfectionism is a perennial topic in gifted. Almost every professional or parent who works with gifted recognizes perfectionism in gifted children. Our presentation will look at some of the causes and solutions to unhealthy perfectionism in gifted.
Many gifted students set high standards for themselves, but what happens if these standards are set to perfection? How do characteristics of giftedness and mindsets about their own abilities influence perfectionism in gifted children? Perfectionistic beliefs can impact a child’s goals, achievement outcomes, and behaviors. Such behaviors are often displayed as procrastination, self-handicapping, avoidance-coping, and even underachievement. What can you as a practitioner, parent, or teacher do to nurture a love or learning vs. a fear of failure? Specific strategies will be shared to gear children towards a healthy pursuit of excellence.
