The Gifted Development Center has created a cadre of professionals in the field of giftedness to educate, encourage and support gifted people and the organizations that serve them throughout the world. National and world-renowned specialists in the field have gathered together to bring their expertise and knowledge to you through our Speakers’ Bureau. Their specialties include:
When gifted children are nurtured, society benefits. But when ignored or misdirected, they can become society’s misfits. Gifted children have unique and special needs that deserve suitable methods and appropriations. They can become dispirited in a traditional educational environment.
Our teachers and counselors need tools and strategies; our schools need funding and programs; parents need education and support; and gifted children need assessment, understanding, attention and an appropriate education.
The Gifted Development Center seeks to meet these needs through research, publication, consultation, and the Speakers’ Bureau.
Experts in the field of giftedness stand ready to serve your needs. Each speaker is well known and versed in the general field of giftedness. Each has at least one specialty within the field and a unique style of presentation.
