Events, Workshops & Groups


Monday, March 4
10:30 to 11:30 am
Lafayette, CA 

Come hear Teresa Currivan, LMFT and Parent Coach (that’s me), talk about Twice Exceptionality. Most of us have heard the term, but what is it, really?

2e (twice exceptionality) refers to gifted individuals who also have challenges. But there’s so much more to understand. These kids are often the ones struggling emotionally or academically (ironic, I know) in school and have been given labels by professionals that may not be as helpful as understanding the bigger picture of how they are wired. They often don’t seem “gifted” in the traditional sense.

There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

When: Monday, March 4
10:30 to 11:30 am
Where: Lafayette, CA (Address given upon RSVP)

This is a free event with limited space. Please RSVP to



High School Options for 2e Learners: An Informal Parent Discussion Group

High School Options for 2e Learners: An Informal Parent Discussion Group

Are you ready to begin considering high school options for your 2e child? Do you know of some high schools that might work, or do you want to come and learn from other parents to increase your knowledge about East Bay and SF options? Information about high schools in other areas also welcome. This is a great opportunity to meet other 2e parents! (PS: I’m looking for someone to briefly share their experience homeschooling a gifted and/or 2e teen.)
