Twice-Exceptional Smart Kids with Learning Differences

TAGT 2013 gtchat 4

LIVE from Houston, Texas! Global #gtchat was excited to be at this year’s TAGT Annual Conference where we debuted the new brochure from Gifted Homeschoolers Forum on Twice-Exceptional Learners. It was a perfect match with sentiments shared in the Conference Keynote by Dr. Temple Grandin. A full transcript may be found here.

It’s always an exhilarating experience to participate in a Twitter chat with a live audience and this was no exception. Many thanks goes out to those who came to help the folks who were new to chat. Check out the pictures below!

Special thanks to Corin Goodwin and her staff from Gifted Homeschoolers Forum for going the extra mile to make this a very special and informative chat. Global #gtchat appreciates the collaborative relationship that has developed between our two organizations. Support of gifted children and their unique needs is definitely a community effort.
