CLIENTELE FEEDBACK

“I am almost without words to express the extent of my gratitude for your presentation. You are encouraging and motivating! Your positive energy and enthusiasm are contagious! Thank you for helping me to genuinely accept myself and my children, even with all our “gifted” idiosyncrasies!”

-Presentation Attendee

“What a knowledgeable, inspiring, incredible speaker! I wish all teachers of gifted children could hear Dr. Patty speak. Every parent I spoke with came away from her presentation feeling she really understood gifted children, families and the dynamics that we all deal with on a daily basis. It made us feel validated and it was healing to hear her speak so honestly about gifted children and adults.”

-Presentation Attendee

“You offered great, practical ideas for both parents and teachers. I wish I had this workshop 30 years ago when I was a young parent of gifted children. It would have changed our lives!”

-Workshop Attendee

“Everything you said was helpful! This is the first time this information was presented to me even though my high school sons have been in gifted programs since the first grade. I wish every teacher could hear you speak to learn who these kids really are and why they do what they do, or don’t do.”
