Resources for Professionals

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.

"Gifted friendly" service providers understand the unique challenges and issues that gifted individuals often have. These people have had training, experience, expertise and/or an appreciation for working with the gifted. (Many of them are gifted individuals themselves!) Individuals and organizations listed here have either been recommended by gifted individuals and have agreed to be listed, or have voluntarily requested to be listed here.
