Beyond IQ - Greater Boston

Lessons Learned: What do we know about educating highly and profoundly gifted children?

2014 Program

Registration will be in the foyer. The Friday program will be held in rooms A & B.


Friday, April 4, at BIQ

Workshops for Professionals


Check-in for Friday will be between 8 and 9am, with a continental breakfast. Lunch on Friday will also be with the Conference. We usually finish up around 4pm, but sometimes discussions go on into dinner!

In keeping with the theme of the weekend, a major focus of our discussions will deal with lessons learned from working with the gifted and their influences on what we do. We’ll explore those ideas – and what is/is not within our domain to address.

We will be offering both a fixed structure with specific workshops for those who prefer them, and less formal discussions, varying large and small group interaction based on the needs and interests of our attendees. This permits us to address individual questions more effectively than the standard presentation model seems to.

Let us know your interests!
