Find Other Gifted Kids

“Gifted students have a need to be grouped with intellectual peers at least part of every day,” Swicord says. If your kid's school doesn't offer a program for gifted kids, talk to teachers about where he can find like-minded peers. They don't have to have the exact same interests, but your child is more likely to thrive around peers who appreciate his quirks. You'll also be able to share resources with other parents.
