Supporting professionals in addressing the academic and social-emotional needs of highly able/gifted students

The Challenge for All Summit is intended for principals, coordinators, administrators, student support personnel, counselors, and teachers with an interest in or responsibility for the provision of services for highly able/gifted learners. A variety of workshop sessions, discussion forums and panels will emphasise practical application and action planning so that participants can return to their schools with a roadmap and a vision for future services.

Graduate credit through The State University of New York (SUNY) is available for conference attendees!
