Advocacy for gifted students can take many forms.

Students can learn positive and empowering methods of advocating for themselves.

Parents can learn to work collaboratively with their children’s teachers, their schools, and their school districts to better meet the needs of students with gifts and talents. Parents can also become familiar with some of the resources which can be useful tools in advocacy. Deb Douglas, past president of the Wisconsin Association for Talented and Gifted, will share information and answer questions on this important topic.

This event is designed to equip parents with strategies for advocacy on behalf of their children and self-advocacy tips for children and students.
