If the one-size fits all school mentality does not serve your child well then it may be time for a change. School environments are often a mismatch for gifted children particularly for twice-exceptional and highly to profoundly gifted children. Overexcitabilities and asynchronicity play a huge role in the development of a gifted child which is often misunderstood and unsupported in a school classroom.
When school doesn’t fit the child, parents are left confused and worried about their child’s future. Unschooling can be an overwhelming concept for many mainstream parents who never invisioned an alternative educational or parenting path.
Forget everything you thought you knew about parenting a gifted child. Are you ready to open your mind to the possibilities of raising happy, intelligent, creative and emotional resilient critical thinkers and innovative problem solvers?
Unschooling is self-directed, passion-led learning which requires a shift in mindset and a willingness to trust your children. Parents gain understanding and insight into their children’s unique learning styles and how to support self-directed learning at home and in the world.
Amy offers guidance to help families understand their gifted child’s educational, psychological and social-emotional needs. She helps support families through the process of deschooling which is a critical time period for parents and children to shift their mind away from a schooling mindset and rethink parenting and education.
Unschooling is a different approach that doesn’t rely on curriculum or teachers. An unschooling philosophy embraces the concept that learning is happening everywhere, children are innately curious and the world is an interesting place. Amy can help you understand and support your gifted or twice-excpetional child through an unschooling philosophy and non-authoritative, unconditional parenting approach.
