Advocacy for Gifted Learners
and Gifted Education

What is advocacy for gifted learners? Advocacy–simply put–is the “act or process of supporting a cause or proposal” (Merriam-Webster). Advocating for the needs of gifted learners is an important task that educators, parents, and students should be a part of in order to ensure appropriate resources and supports for this population of students. 


While some people believe that being an advocate means being assertive, pushy, or combative, NCAGT believes this is far from true. Being an advocate means being knowledgeable of gifted policies and practices while being willing to speak to their importance.
