NAGC receives similar questions from teachers and parents; however, rarely is there an opportunity to explore how the "other side" might face the issue. Interestingly, both groups benefit from the same information even though they look at it from different perspectives and have different roles to play in helping gifted children reach their potential. Our ongoing goal is for teachers and parents to develop a broader understanding of their students' potential (and one another) which will enable them to build stimulating learning environments that tap into a child's high potential.
These resources for parents, teachers, and community members are designed to provide practical advice for working together to support gifted children's continued growth in educational settings. The answers to the questions are examined in Connecting For High Potential, available exclusively to NAGC Members here.
