October is associated with Autumn - a time when nature settles in for the winter months coming ahead. We as parents, teachers and clinicians sometimes feel the same way - as though we have to "settle" with the status quo. Hopefully this issue of "Gifted & Distractible" will give you some inspiration and energy to dig deep and find sunshine in your own and your child's everyday lives.

Join us at 2 Days of 2e Virtual Conference to get FIRED UP about parenting and teaching your 2e children and to gain valuable insights and strategies to help you feel GREAT about parenting and teaching this complex and wonderful profile! REGISTER
