Websites with latest research on gifted education

This is a site for the National Association of Gifted Children. It is a rich site with links to standards for gifted education, information on conferences, materials, and parenting strategies. http://www.nagc.org/

To get involved with grassroots organization that promotes fair public education for the gifted, this national network is a good place to start.

Highly gifted children have IQ's that measure over 150. This site offers resources to families of very bright children.

This website is great for information on bright kids and materials: www.eskimo.com/~user/kids.html

The National Center for Research on Gifted Education is made up of a consortium of University of Connecticut, Yale University, and the University of Virginia. Their website offers research and articles on the topics in this field.
