Saturday Programs for the Gifted: An Alternative for Parent Advocacy Groups.
Robinson, Ann
Saturday enrichment programs are viable options for gifted children who are not served in the public schools. Because such programs are not dependent on schools or state departments for funding, or for initiation, Saturday programs can be successfully operated by parent and other advocacy groups. Guidelines for considering such programs focus on analyzing facilities and resources (including staff, publicity, and tuition considerations), developing an identification plan and program format (whether extended learning or one-shot approaches), capitalizing on procedures already in use in other Saturday programs, monitoring program results, and maintaining information on the program's teachers.
