About California Gifted Network

Our Story

The California Gifted Network provides a forum to bring together gifted individuals and their families with professionals and organizations who endeavor to meet the social, emotional, educational, and physical needs of gifted and twice-exceptional individuals in California.

Lisa and Joanna met at a SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) Conference, and after sharing their similar frustrations and challenges in parenting gifted and twice-exceptional children, they realized that although California has a wealth of gifted resources, trying to find and utilize them was daunting. They decided to form the California Gifted Network in order to create a comprehensive, user – friendly place for the California gifted community to find resources, information, and support.
