How To Support Your Exceptionally Able Child
National Association For Gifted Children
NAGC's mission is to support those who enhance the growth and development of gifted and talented children through education, advocacy, community building, and research. We aim to help parents and families, K-12 education professionals including support service personnel, and members of the research and higher education community who work to help gifted and talented children as they strive to achieve their personal best and contribute to their communities. www.nagc.org
The Davidson Institute has a mission to recognize, nurture and support profoundly intelligent young people and to provide opportunities for them to develop their talents to make a positive difference. To fulfill their mission, they have a variety of programs aimed at profoundly gifted students, including the summer THINK Institute, a full time school in Reno, an online homeschool high school, a Fellows program for students who have done something amazing, and a Young Scholars program, which supports the families of profoundly gifted children as well. They also support teachers of gifted children through their Educators Guild. www.davidsongifted.org
