Different Minds is pleased to announce a Free Facilitated Forum for parents of twice exceptional learners for parents to gain information and insights into the issues facing their different-brained children.  Readings and discussion points provided by Ilana Rembelinsky as facilitator.

When: September 23 &  30, 6:30-8:00pm
Where: The Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Hwy. in  Multnomah Village

Parents can develop support networks, find like-minded/like-spirited children for possible play dates and social contacts, brainstorm the types of services they would like to find in the community, and share resources.  Participation is capped at 30.  

This website is under construction as I transition from full time classroom teaching.  I will be retooling my practice for fall 2015 clients and support groups.  My ongoing focus is on twice exceptional learners and their families, specifically:

• Parent Support Groups
• Functional Assessments
• Goal Setting
• Home - School Facilitation
• Small Group Educational/Social Enrichment Activities

Please feel free to contact me if there are specific services you are looking for that I may be able to incorporate into the practice. 

Mission Statement 

To foster positive identity in gifted youths and adults, to facilitate the
development of their individual talents and gifts, and to support their
success in academic and social settings.
