Resources for Families of Gifted Learners

Parents, grandparents, and other primary caregivers are commonly involved in programs for high ability/high potential learners in several ways.


  • offer support and are involved in meaningful ways with their children's education;
  • advocate for appropriate placement, curriculum, strategies, and for addressing social/emotional needs; and
  • provide context for a learner's specific needs; and volunteer to assist with school programs and classroom needs.
