Advocating for gifted students is neither being 'pushy' nor elitist; rather, it is critical for adults to become skilled advocates for gifted youth, to maintain their engagement in learning, enable gifted students to develop talents and realise their potential in areas of ability, strength and interest. </p> <p>THIS IS A ZOOM EVENT.
