Resources for Parents

There are lots of resources on the web to support your child’s individual gifts and talents.  There are also activities, workshops, and learning opportunities that are available to you right here in Lancaster County.  Many links are listed on the bottom right hand side of your screen under “Links for Parents”.  Below, I also list some books that I recommend for parents. In addition, here are a few blogs that I follow that are worth your time if you are learning about gifted and how to best support your gifted child.
