Academic AdvocacyAcademic Advocacy for Gifted Children


A Parent’s Complete Guide (Revised Edition)

Author(s): Barbara J. Gilman, M.S.


Formerly titled Empowering Gifted Minds: Educational Advocacy that Works, this book is an essential guide to parent advocacy for gifted students. Parents and teachers can learn how to document a child’s abilities and how to approach the schools to request reasonable educational options for that child in each academic year. This book also provides information on testing, score interpretation, curriculum, and successful programs for children in grades K-12. It is a practical and helpful guide written by a parent who learned how to advocate for her own son and who now helps other families advocate in their local schools to provide appropriate challenge for their gifted children.
