Thank you for attending our presentations at the 2017 World Council for Gifted & Talented Children Conference in Sydney, Australia. We were honored to share 4 presentations on the work we are doing since opening our doors in 2015.
As a young learning institution, we develop the unlimited potential of our gifted students so that they can discover unlimited possibilities in their lives. We are excited to share our innovative approach to learning in order to inspire and enable others to build differentiation in their classrooms, to challenge and engage students in active and memorable learning, and to advocate for gifted education. We hope to continue a conversation with you through our website, newsletter, gifted blog, and on social media!
We would love to hear from you!

In addition, here are links to more references that may be of interest.
- A Guide to State Policies in Gifted Education edited by E. Wayne Lord, and Julie Dingle Swanson. Now in its second edition, this guide is an indespensible resource from the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC). As there are no federal standards regarding gifted education, this is the definitive guide of the widely varying policies by state. Our founders, Melissa Bilash and Jennifer Nance, in addition to Wendy Behrens, and Elyssa Brown, Grayson Research Advisory Board members, each contributed to the development of this guide. Thank you to René Islas and the NAGC for providing a 20% discount (use code STATE-POLICY at checkout) for conference attendees!
- Our Gifted & Talented Resource Directory provides a few links to other publications, organizations, blogs, enrichment programs and more. Please let us know if you think we are missing a link to a valuable resource that we can share with our growing community!
As parents, educators, and advocates, we know that the process of meeting a gifted child’s needs can feel overwhelming. Our Director of Research & Development has compiled a few guidelines and resources that we have found useful in understanding and supporting gifted learners.
