Gifted and Thriving's Online Courses
Gifted and Thriving offers pre-recorded courses for a variety of audiences and topics. At this time two courses have been completed on the topic of neurodiversity (one for parents and another for educators). We also have developed a "Passion Project" course for students Dr. Mike leads directly in small groups. We are planning on offering more courses in 2021 on topics such as creativity, assessment, designing gifted programming, anxiety/depression, processing speed/working memory and much more. These are self-paced courses that allow you to work through the material at your own pace.Check Out Our Online Courses Here

"Each session of the fit course has been such a revelation and we have learned so much valuable, practical information from each session. We highly recommend other parents of their gifted/twice-exceptional child take this course."
"Great topics in this course. They are deep, but not too deep as they are broken down well for us to learn. I liked that each session built upon the previous session and the guidebook was so helpful to make it personal for our son and family's journey. Great course!"
"High quality product with such helpful and informative content that we put into practice and understood our gifted son better. I especially loved the live parent discussion groups each week."
