Strength in Numbers
The 2012 SENG Conference was held in Milwaukee this week. I had the pleasure of presenting my thoughts on self-advocacy to a full room yesterday and was energized by the passion and compassion of those in attendance. Parents and educators and counselors and so many others, all intent on working together to support the emotional needs of the gifted. How refreshing. No need to explain our mission or justify our work. Just as gifted kids thrive when networking with their like-ability peers, events like this are vital to their advocates.
