The Network's mission is to maintain and promote an attitude of inquiry and to disseminate information in the areas of early childhood gifted: 1) identification and assessment (establish a rationale that supports early identification of giftedness; establish a resource guide to instruments and procedures for early identification; develop suggestions for the use of assessment information in effective educational planning); 2) curricula and programs (develop criteria for appropriate curricula and/or programs; identify appropriate curriculum materials; identify program models, implementation strategies, evaluation methods; design staff development materials and methodologies); 3) research (create a solid research base; design and implement studies that address current needs in the area of early childhood gifted children); and 4) parenting (facilitate and support parent networks and advocacy groups; develop materials for effective parenting of early childhood gifted children).
