About the Event
Children can show frustration, boredom, a deep interest in some areas, unusual ability, difficulty in fitting with peers and other characteristics. Parents of such young children (ages 4-10) are at a loss at times to identify the root cause of the issues and seek help from schools and other experts to address the situation. Sometimes these issues are related to giftedness- a child may not be challenged sufficiently or not have the opportunity to be part of an appropriate peer group. In this situation, it can be hard for parents and teachers to know what to do because expertise in identifying and working with gifted children is not easily available.
Parents and teachers whose wards may be displaying unusual ability, will benefit from this session. The 3 expert panelists will share common issues, tips for parents, options available for talent development and address the questions of participants.

- Dr. Bhooshan Shukla, eminent child psychiatrist and parenting coach who has worked with several gifted children in his clinical practice. https://www.genwise.in/our-instructors/Bhooshan-Shukla
