shanvan Posted February 24, 2012 Share Posted February 24, 2012 Ds (13) is obviously gifted at public speaking. Wherever we go he volunteers in discussions, uses elevated vocabulary, and presents his points with confidence. I constantly receive compliments on his speaking ability. He has an opportunity to give a public presentation for 4H yearly and always receives excellent awards. He has been asked to speak on various topics to our local county health department and to the county Kennel club. As we are approaching high school I wonder if he should have more outlets to continue to develop this skill. I have investigated the local ICC chapter twice in the past few years, and I do not like the tone of the leaders and children participating, so I would not want him there. At one point I was tempted to sign him up and just make do with the situation, but we have resolved that it would just add unnecessary drama and stress without a whole lot of learning. It's a long story, but many of the ICC students attend a co-op we left b/c of various issues and it seems those issues are also present at the ICC group. He can progress to giving 4H presentations at the State Level, but, again that is once a year. Anyone have any ideas about what else he can do with his speaking skills? Any other organizations he can join? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
