Explore this page for resources and links to support the social-emotional needs
of gifted and advanced learners.
Gifted and advanced learners have unique psychological needs, and parents and educators can do much to provide appropriate support for gifted and advanced learners so that they thrive academically and social-emotionally.
Helping children to develop resilience, set goals, develop a growth mindset, and respond positively to criticism are some ways that parents and educators can provide support.
