Resources and alternatives for gifted students will be presented by Stanford University's Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY) at the School of Education Auditorium on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. .
Parents are encouraged to attend the EPGY presentation to learn about educational opportunities and resources for gifted students. Classroom lesson plans are generally not individualized. Students may suffer if they have previously mastered the material or learn at a more rapid pace than the rest of the class. Parents who are educated about available resources and alternatives, such as independent study and after school programs, can successfully advocate for their children. Summer programs aimed at gifted students can provide an excellent group learning experience.
Parents who advocate for gifted alternatives are welcomed by teachers and administrators who also want the optimum educational environment for each child.
