GHF Families are pioneers in homeschooling. Our community started out of the need to create learning environments for our children to thrive. Here we are fifteen years later and we have developed an experienced community that now spans multiple generations. The heart of GHF is the steady influx of new families seeking help. Gifted and 2E families have built an infrastructure for ourselves to be in charge of our lives, to develop our own sense of agency.
GHF’s community is the result of volunteer families collectively working together to develop family agency. Most families were and are reluctant to make these changes. We come together and share resources, seek and receive information, and build the next generation of veteran families that are here to support the newcomers.
Our new generation of families is now learning that educating our children is about choosing from a wide palette of options that start with families taking control. It doesn’t have to mean pulling children totally out of school anymore either unless that is what you want to do. It’s about your choices.
The Northwest Gifted Child Association (NWGCA) is a support and advocacy organization for parents of gifted children. Organized in 1963 (20 years before the state legislature provided grant money to school districts for gifted education programs), NWGCA provides support and information to parents of gifted children. It continues to help parents enhance and hone their parenting skills. It gives them tools to speak out for an appropriate gifted education and deal with this learning difference we call giftedness.
NWGCA keeps you informed about upcoming events, involved in speaking up for gifted education with policy makers, and linked with other parents and gifted education leaders. NWGCA works with individual families, talking with them by phone and through emails, providing appropriate referrals and resources. No one is more effective at educating educators and policy makers about the traits of giftedness than informed parents. If your child is gifted, or you believe your child is gifted, join our mailing list!
Ten Ways NWGCA Makes a Difference
1. Creates the one voice that shapes education policy for high potential learners.
2. Supports the development and programming of local school district parent groups for gifted education.
