Lowry Speaker Series Presents: “Navigating the Education System with an Exceptional Child”
February 8, 2022
Join us at 7pm for a discussion with Lowry residents (and mother and son) GG Johnston and Gregor Owens. They will talk about Gregor’s learning differences and how they’ve advocated for each other on his educational journey.
Separately GG Johnston and Gregor Owens think differently; but together, they navigate the same path, advocating for each other. Their differences make them a strong, loving and sometimes feisty team. What to do when your 2E (twice-exceptional) kid doesn’t fit into the boxes schools want them to? Become a Mama Bear. GG will talk about her BEAR rules while Gregor will teach us why schools need to evolve. Together, from the parent and student perspective, they will show us how.
GG Johnston is a leadership development and organizational health expert who utilizes those skills to advocate for her son, Gregor, on his journey as a teenager and young adult with learning differences and a unique way of seeing the world. Gregor is learning to be a champion for himself on his educational journey. Join us for a discussion with this remarkable Lowry family.
