Parent Group Spotlight
Parenting for High Potential, v4 n2 p14-16 Oct 2014
This issue's "Parent Group Spotlight" features Deborah Simon, president of West Sound Gifted, Talented & Twice-Exceptional (WSGT2e), who started a parent group in Washington in 2013. In just one year, this small, but mighty group has held community forums, attended school board meetings, and helped influence local gifted programming. Simon, a former teacher and paralegal, is now homeschooling two daughters, completing a master's degree in gifted education, and writing a blog on the musings of a family with gifted children. She offers to tips to other parents on how to effectively start and maintain and advocacy group in their local area. In this brief article, Simon answers questions about how she started WSGT2e, the group's ongoing activities, and the impact the group has had on gifted programming in the state of Washington.
