Executive Functioning Strategies for Gifted Kids

Presented by Dr. Morgan Beidleman

October 11, 2023, 6-8 pm

As part of our parent education series, Mackintosh Academy is pleased to host this interactive presentation on executive functioning and gifted children. Current parents, prospective parents, professionals, and interested community members are welcome to attend.

Executive functioning can be hard to pinpoint. In her practice, Dr. Beidleman often hears: “Is my child lazy? Being defiant? Or are they struggling to master executive functioning skills? And if so…what can I do to help them?”

If this is you, you are not alone! Executive functioning skills are not inherent skills. Rather, they need to be taught just like other life-long skills. In this presentation, Dr. Beidleman will be sharing briefly about some of the common traits surrounding giftedness and executive functioning. Then, she’ll dive into practical strategies for home, school, and homework management. Parents will leave with strategies that can be implemented quickly and resources that can provide additional help.
