Inform, Connect, Enrich
Our mission and passion is to provide information, connection, enrichment and helpful resources
to families and educators of gifted, high-ability, and twice-exceptional children.
What does "gifted" really mean?
Children are gifted when their ability is significantly above the norm for their age, and those abilities may manifest in one or more areas: intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership, or in a specific academic field such as language arts, mathematics or science.
At Gifted Support Network, we know that being the parent or educator of a gifted child can be exciting, but it can also have its challenges. We are here to provide resources and information, help parents of gifted kids make connections with other parents, and provide opportunities for high-ability children to work with their peers to reach and exceed their potential.
This is a great place to start learning: How To Identify, Understand, and Teach Gifted Children
"Gifted children's development depends on people understanding them." ~ Linda Silverman, PhD
