Grandparents as Advocates
Karnes, Frances A.
Understanding Our Gifted, v18 n1 p18-19 Fall 2005
All adults are needed to support and advocate for kids to provide a solid base on which they can grow. Gifted children are no exception. In order to effectively advocate for gifted children, one must know about national, state, and local laws and about policies providing effective programming and services for this population of students. Grandparents can be valuable resources for advocating in the schools. They have experience in speaking, writing, creativity, and interpersonal, organizational, and developmental skills. The author stresses the role of grandparents in advocating for gifted children and in making a difference in the education of gifted children across the nation. (Contains 4 online resources.)
