In addition to providing intellectual stimulation and opportunities to forge friendships with other gifted children, summer programs for gifted children can nurture and support a child’s interests. Why so many schools? Because, like many gifted children, Fisher’s sons’ learning needs weren’t being met. As Fisher discovered, the gift of having a gifted child comes wrapped in challenges.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to finding the right school for a gifted child, and programs. Additionally, gifted students need gifted programming in many cases because the “general education program is not yet ready to meet the needs of gifted students” (p. 9) due to lack of general educators’ training in gifted. Parents, educators, and the broader community have a responsibility to support all children as they reach for their personal best.

It is essential to support the growth and development of the whole gifted child. Gifted children love to learn and that doesn’t stop during the summer months. Luckily, parents can send their children to summer camps sponsored by universities or gifted organizations that offer courses providing in-depth study of a variety of subjects. Sometimes it’s easy for parents to forget that their gifted toddler or preschooler is still only their biological age.

Parents of a gifted 3-year-old who is reading at a third-grade level, for example, can “forget” that their child has only been alive for three years. No matter how smart these young gifted children. Why Test? Testing provides an objective and systematic way for identifying gifted children. Ability and achievement tests provide numbers or scores to describe a student’s performance in relation to others.

Tests are often used as benchmark requirements for entrance into specific programs. So, when it comes to discovering if your own kid is gifted, one option is to wait and see whether teachers or others at your child’s school recommend testing for a gifted education program. This is often used when a child is gifted in one subject but performing at or below grade level in another.

TAG: Talented and Gifted; the name for gifted programs in some districts and states. Twice Exceptional, Twice Gifted, or 2E: Gifted. Gifted education (also known as gifted and talented education (GATE), talented and gifted programs (TAG), or G/T education) is a broad group of special practices, procedures, and theories used in the education of children who have been identified as gifted or talented.. The main approaches to gifted education are enrichment and acceleration.An enrichment program.

Because children often feel more connected to their community when, in some small way, they give something back, educators can also sponsor community service projects.

Sometimes this can be done informally just by meeting other parents of gifted children within the school district, through their state gifted association, or by contacting national organizations such as the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) or Supporting Emotional Needs of Gifted (SENG).

  • “there are way too many people out there who are obsessed with teling kids to go to college, find a good job, to be successful”
    ugh my mom drilled harvard and yale into my brain for so long and im only now realizing that its a great “dream” or a great “accomplishment” but very unreasonable.

  • I’m applying for CTY this summer, ahhhh I hope I get in! Thanks for the tips!
    Question: I’m 13 right now, can I still get into SET?

  • My 5th grade son just got into CTY yesterday and will be doing Robotics at Ursinus College this summer. Thanks for the informative video. He placed with Grand Honors but not really sure what this means. Is there an award ceremony?

  • for the summer camp, if ur not a cty membor already, but u qualify test-wise, if there anything else u need to do for the application or are u in (im in 10th grade btw)

  • I’m so happy you made this video I recently got into this program and they told me I have the opportunity to travel abroad to universities such as Hong kong university its great

  • Ik this is months after you made this video and I just wanna say that I was selected for the cty program and I’m in sixth grade. It’s not the same grade level but I’m honestly confusedas the fact that I am a Bstudent. This video gave me an idea of why I was selected oh and the testing was extremely hard! Thank you so much. I might not attend the John Hopkins cty program as I got lots of other offers but this video helped me!

  • CTY summer programs are honestly an amazing experience and I recommend that anyone who qualifies should go (I went to Lancaster too)

  • “no one has changed the world by doing what the world has told them to do” well god damn dude, if that isn’t a motivational quote I don’t know what is.
