Empower gifted learners to take charge of their education.
Gifted learners are full of potential, but sometimes they're also frus­trated, bored, and even disruptive in class. Many bright students struggle because they have never been taught how to ask for what they really need to improve their school experience. This research-based guide shows educators how to teach self-advocacy skills to gifted students in four essential steps. Gifted students will:

  • Understand their rights and responsibilities
  • Develop their learner profiles
  • Investigate available options and opportunities
  • Connect with advocates
  • These simple yet comprehensive strategies are brought to life in triumphant true student stories. Also included are complete instructions for conducting a day-long self-advocacy workshop with gifted students. Digital content includes a workshop facilita­tor's guide, a PDF presentation for use in workshops, pre- and post-workshop student surveys, and customizable forms.
