G&T Evaluation, Fall 2013

 Every parent hopes for their student to excel in school, but sometimes parents just don’t know what to do with a child who is especially exceptional. Keeping him or her challenged, interested, and engaged can be tough. Parents of gifted children should know that they’re not alone. We are here to help and there are also hundreds of resources on the Web that can help every step of the way. Here are some we think stand out from the crowd, offering advice, information, support, and educational resources to help you support and encourage your child’s special abilities.
