Building support for gifted children and your local parent group

Abstract: 

This eBook came about at the suggestion of Joel McIntosh at Prufrock Press, who made the connection that quality gifted education exists in places where there are strong parent groups. Always about meeting needs through publications, he asked if the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) could help create the content for a guide to help parents develop effective and sustainable parent groups. The leaders of the NAGC Parent Advisory Committee and the Parent and Community Network jumped at the opportunity because they know about the successes that occur when parents come together to advocate with schools, districts, and governments.

The advice and examples included in this eBook come directly from the experiences of parents of gifted children who have learned, firsthand, how to work with and encourage others to speak out in support of the learning needs of gifted students. --from the Acknowledgements
