More Information for Parents and Educators
 
Gifted children need strong, responsible advocates. Informed and involved parents are critical to any student's success. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy for parents to know where to go for information or how to help their gifted child reach his/her full potential.

MYTH: Students getting poor or average grades cannot be gifted.

REALITY: Not all gifted students are academically successful. The causes of underachievement differ greatly. It is imperative that perceptive, well-trained adults recognize gifted learners and help them break the cycle of underachievement. Source: National Association for Gifted Children
