School counselors play a critical role in schools to advocate, collaborate, and promote equity and access for all students through well designed and delivered counseling programs. Gifted students, whether identified or not, often are not given access to academic challenges that are an integral part of the regular school day and that are commensurate with the academic abilities of the student. These students often cross the path of the school counselor, who can advocate for appropriate placement in a gifted program, and provide support for their unique academic and social emotional needs.
This workshop will offer insights to school counselors to help them support the gifted student, who may or may not be identified, understand their unique characteristics and needs, and learn how to advocate for them so they have an opportunity to grow their abilities and reach their full potential. Our school counselors can help gifted students flourish and this workshop will provide keys for doing so.
