The Smart but Struggling Student — Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz, LMFT
Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz, LMFT
Join Debbie, Diane and Linda to talk about bright and quirky kids, who are also called ‘twice exceptional,’ because they are very bright and also have challenges such as ADHD, autism, learning differences, or all at the same time! Debbie will share some of the main themes from her recent parent survey as well as key concepts and tips to try out at home. Learn about the self-scientist lifestyle and how a family can use the design thinking process to build their own success strategies. Learn tips for student disengagement, executive function deficits, disruptive behavior in class and a stressed parent-child relationship.
