4-H is a cosponsor of a special event at Edufest in Boise on July 28 featuring Temple Grandin, a professor, prolific author, and one of the most accomplished and renowned adults with autism in the world. During this captivating general session, Grandin will share her personal story and her insights into the vibrant population we know as twice-exceptional children. Too often these kids—both gifted and diagnosed with a disability—get lost in an endless cycle of chasing diagnostic labels and are never given the tools to fully realize their potential.
Come away with deeper insights into the challenges these learners face, as well as a fresh perspective on what we in the support community of parents and educators, can do to help some of our brightest children succeed. Click to view Dr. Grandin's Biography.
Dr. Grandin will also talk about the benefits of 4-H Youth Development programing for youth who are both gifted and diagnosed with a disability.
The cost for the workshop will be $30.00 for the 4-H slots. Space is limited! The workshop will be from 8:30 – 12:00, Monday, July 28 on the BSU Campus, Boise. To register contact Shana Codr email@example.com or Jim Lindstrom firstname.lastname@example.org.
