Resources for Parents

Numerous resources are available today that provide information and advice about gifted education and gifted kids; it can be daunting to select only one or two. We have listed those resources which we have personally found to be useful in living and working with gifted individuals.

Summer programs can provide gifted individuals with unique opportunities to pursue their interests, and more importantly, spend time with other children who have similar advanced abilities. These experiences help gifted children make friends in a ways that they may find difficult during the regular school year.
