    I think these boards are pretty new. I hope they will grow. I was thinking this link might be good for you, Sfireblue, as it is for people working in the school system. http://www.educatorsguild.org/
    Best Wishes -

    I was identified as gifted at 8 years old and was in the program from the 4th grade right up until I graduated from highschool. I am now a third year university student and am writing a term paper on gifted children in society. My working title is "The outside circle: gifted children looking for somewhere to belong" I was wondering if anyone has any input on this subject or other suggested resources?

    Thanks

    Amanda

    I think belonging is a key for gifted children. Human are social creatures. From a child's eye view: different can equal "worse" even if the difference looks like a positive one to adults.

    Also - What is a Gifted Intervention specialist? Sounds like an interesting role.

    I just joined and will likely not be too coherent in that I am having some insomnia issues tonight and it is very late (or early depending on how you see it!).

    I was thinking the same thing -- that there are limited posts here in comparison to some other discussion boards. However, I did also notice that the original poster lives right near me! I'd love to get involved in any GT parents groups as my 7 y/o dd could really use to community (and I could too). I don't see any way to email her directly so I hope that she will check back here!
