In our webinars, you can explore everything CTY has to offer--even ask questions in real time--from the comfort of your home or office. Webinars are live video presentations streamed over the Internet. While you learn about a range of topics (see list below), you can type in questions, talk to the presenter over the phone, or just listen.
The CTY Webinars will resume in September 2014. Please check back then to register.
In the meantime, you are welcome to download copies of these presentations:

|Understanding the Gifted Underachiever and Twice Exceptional Students||When a bright child struggles in school, it can be extremely confusing and frustrating for parents. Bright underachievers are frequently labeled as lazy, but they may actually have learning differences that are impeding their success. Not all bright students are alike! In fact, bright students can have significant learning differences and can be considered twice-exceptional. One of our licensed psychologists, who works in the Diagnostic and Counseling Center, will discuss common characteristics of the gifted underachiever and strategies to help these children perform at a level more commensurate with their potential.||TBD|
