Challenge Parents Association: January 21st Guess Speaker
Posted on 01/12/2021
Challenge Parents Association is excited to host Austina De Bonte as our second CPA guest speaker of the 2020-2021 school year! Please join us Thursday, January 21st at 6:30pm for a CPA General Meeting, followed at 7:00pm by a presentation and collaborative hour with Austina: I Think This Student is 2e, but Now What?

Do you suspect one of your students is Twice Exceptional (2e), but aren't sure what the disability is, or what to do about it? Do you have a diagnosis, but it doesn’t “feel right,” or aren’t sure you’ve uncovered the whole story? Hear about ten common possibilities in detail (such as stealth dyslexia, auditory processing disorder, and dysgraphia), what clues you might notice at home and in the classroom, how to get an official diagnosis, and what accommodations and interventions might be helpful. We'll also discuss the difference between IEPs (Individualized Education Plans) and 504 Plans, why early intervention is so important, the many lookalikes of ADHD, and the national Misdiagnosis Initiative sponsored by SENGifted.org. Austina’s presentation and expertise will help us explore these issues so that we can support our children’s social, emotional, and academic growth at the highest level.
