The 10th Annual AAGT 2018 PARENT INSTITUTE is just around the corner!


“The ABC’s for Parents: Advocacy Blooms Confidence!”

Saturday, October 20, 2018
Gilbert Classical Academy

1016 N. Burk Street, Gilbert, AZ 85234

Given that an advocate is a person who speaks on behalf of another, as parents, grandparents and educators of gifted children, how often do we find ourselves as the advocate for our gifted child? How can we develop effective advocacy tools while still cultivating relationships of respect? Come to this year’s AAGT Parent Institute to glean tips and information that will not only help you better understand your gifted child, but strengthen your confidence in your advocacy abilities.

We are pleased to announce Deb Douglas of Wisconsin as our keynote speaker. As a gifted author and consultant, her work includes over a decade of experience not only teaching and advocating for gifted students, but also empowering others to be effective advocates.

IN CELEBRATION OF OUR 10th YEAR: GT Teen Carpe Diem Workshop on Self-Advocacy!

Led by Deb Douglas, GT Carpe Diem Workshops empower gifted teens to speak up for themselves through a clearer understanding of their unique needs as outliers and their rights to an appropriately challenging educational experience. Following this day of exploration and reflection they will be better able to take charge of their own educations and lives.

“Self-advocacy is not just students getting what they want: it is students getting what they need in order to develop their potential,” ~ Deb Douglas

Seating is limited for the GT Teen Carpe Diem Workshop. Children’s classes offered for students K-5!
