Understanding the PG Path: Staying Informed on Gifted Issues
When the Davidson Institute started in 1999, most of what had been written about educating and raising gifted children could be gathered into a singular binder—alongside about a dozen books. 25 years later, it’s a different story! There’s so much out there. New podcasts and organizations seem to pop up every week. At the same time, it seems really hard to get good information that’s relevant to your particular family. Hear from the Family Services team on how they stay up-to-date on gifted education, gifted child development, resources for gifted families, and parenting gifted children.
