The gifted learning lab

Education & coaching for parents of intense or sensitive 
gifted & twice-exceptional kids

Craving more support parenting your bright, passionate kid?

The Gifted Learning Lab is here to help.

Parenting bright kids can feel tough.

Bright kids can be hard to understand - they’re often remarkable, likable, and witty as well as intense, emotional, and strong-willed.  They can be precocious and independent in some areas yet need extra help in others.

Parenting bright kids can feel lonely.

It's hard to find other parents who understand the joys and exasperations of raising a bright, passionate kid.  And parenting advice that works for other families might not work with your kid, or might not feel right to you.

The Gifted Learning Lab helps parents feel more confident raising their intense or sensitive bright kids.
In the Gifted Learning Lab, parents gain confidence through 4 key elements. 

Accurate information

Understand giftedness and twice-exceptionality in a new way so you know what your bright, passionate kid needs to thrive.  Learn research-based strategies and principles specifically for gifted and twice-exceptional kids with big feelings or emotional intensity.

 

Adaptation

Get support adapting principles and strategies to your unique family situation.  Try new approaches at home to see what works for your kid, your parenting style, and your current life situation.  Adapt and iterate with help from a knowledgeable, collaborative coach.

 

Reflection

Feel more grounded & calm with guided reflections to help you process what you've learned and nurture your self-compassion.  Celebrate your strengths, understand your challenges, and generate new solutions as you reflect on your experiences and needs. 

Connection

Connect with your child, even in tough moments.  Connect with other parents who are equally passionate about supporting their own bright kids.  Get support from a coach who understand intense and sensitive gifted and twice-exceptional kids.

At the Gifted Learning Lab, we believe there's absolutely nothing wrong with you or your child, even when things are tough - you just need different supports, strategies, and frameworks designed specifically for families like yours.
