A New Option for Gifted Students 
Is your child an avid reader? Is he or she highly intuitive? As a parent, are you constantly in search of new information to quench your child's thirst for knowledge? If so, your child might be what is referred to in academic parlance as "gifted." The National Association for Gifted Children defines "gifted" as "a person who shows or has the potential to show an exceptional level of performance in one or more areas of expression."
 
A Gift for the Gifted
If you have a gifted child at home, or think you might, we know you've asked yourself these questions countless times: What exactly is giftedness? How can I determine if my child is gifted? What is the best education for my gifted child? The local schools can't offer my child what he or she needs to thrive, what alternatives do we have? Meeting the unique educational, emotional, and social needs of a child who is exceptionally bright can feel intimidating. But if you've found Homeschool.com and are reading this article, you're like most parents of gifted children –you're researching your options because you want to give your child the gift of the best education possible.
