Beyond IQ


Last updated May 1, 2019

Beyond IQ - Greater Boston

Giftedness & Personality

2019 Program

(still under construction; time, topics, and presenters subject to change)

Registration will be in the foyer. The Friday program will be held in the Middlesex Room.


Friday, May 3rd, 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 the intersection of personality and giftedness, examining how that impacts the home, educational, and therapeutic environments/processes.

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!
