One of the things many parents ask me is where to find reputable resources they can read, view, or listen to on topics related to their gifted children.
Seeking local resources is an important first step. What is available in your local community and school district that might apply to your child? To find out, contact organizations sponsoring activities listed on the community calendar, or seek the help of the librarian at the public library.
You may also want to begin with a gifted education resource specialist in your local school, if you have one. This person should be able to key in on topics in which your child excels or has an interest, or areas about which your child may have an interest or curiosity. They also often have ideas about local, state and national resources.
Finally, the Internet has a plethora of resources, depending upon the keywords you use to conduct a search, or the websites that you visit.
A reputable website and respected organization to visit is that of the Davidson Institute. The webpage for the Davidson Institute Resource Library opens the door to many resources. Following is how to access the information:
While the Davidson Gifted Blog Resource Library might take a few clicks, it presents a lot of information about many topics related to children and youth who are gifted, some school-related, and some unrelated to school. I hope you find this reputable resource helpful and informative.
