Parent Support Groups

A group of connected parents using their experience in guiding gifted children can accomplish much more than parents working alone. Whether united in advocacy or simply for mutual support, establishing a Parent Support Group (PSG) strengthens the benefits gifted education can have in homes, classrooms, school districts and even at the post-secondary level.
