Workshop on Advocating for Your Gifted Child Wednesday, October 16th

This Wednesday's Advocating for your Gifted Child workshop with Durham PAGE is a great opportunity to get together with other parents and talk about advocating and supporting your child in school.  Any parent can attend.  Your child does not have to be formally labeled as gifted or in a particular program to attend. Come and find out more about the unique challenges in advocating for gifted and advanced students and learn some strategies for your advocacy toolkit.
