Managing Big Emotions
This workshop will focus on the big emotions that gifted children often find hard to manage. Through books, and activities we will look at practical strategies to regulate behaviour and act when worried, angry, stressed or nervous. We will look at the role the brain plays in how we behave and also the use of strategies like breathing and relaxation in managing our actions.
Resilience 7-11 year olds
This workshop will look at topics including Mistakes: What happens if I make a mistake, Why mistakes are good and handling mistakes; Your Brain: How it changes and grows, challenging your thoughts, perfectionism; Stress: managing stress and anxiety, what you can control in your life, relaxation techniques.
Making and Keeping Friends 6-11 year olds
This workshop will look at the values of friendship, different levels of friendship and help to develop skills that will help the children interact with others in a happy productive way.
Assessments and consultations.
Perhaps you know something is going on with your child but are not sure what or maybe you are not even sure they really are gifted. Australian Gifted Support Centre offers a Comprehensive Developmental Assessment which is of great value if you are looking for where to find answers. The assessments have been designed to identify giftedness, to highlight strengths in your child and any possible learning differences, or issues. Your child’s situation will then be analysed and a formal written report will be completed.
