Gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall

Bringing up a gifted child is exciting but it’s rarely easy. And the children themselves can struggle to fit in with a society that doesn’t understand them and makes them feel “different”.

Two events coming up over the next few weeks aim to help both parents and children, both led by Mensa’s gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall and hosted by Mensa’s hub school, the Westwood Academy in Coventry.
