44 - Advocacy: Being a Partner for Gifted Education

Saturday, Nov 11
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Advocacy is the steady fire that lights the way and fuels the journey to better programs and services for developing talent in gifted children. Advocacy is necessary for better outcomes through change. Change comes from laying the foundation and developing relationships so that decision makers see the advocate as part of the solution. Great advocates influence attitudes, behaviors, or systems to benefit the gifted child. This is a win-win session for partners who wish to develop specific skills and strategies for effective advocacy at the local, state, and national levels for gifted education.
