Announcing our next BVGT Zoom Event–“Why Gifted Kids are Actually Special Needs”–on January 17th from 7-8pm!

(The event has concluded.)

Join us to watch Dr. Alok Kanojia’s video presentation explaining why GT students are special needs students and how “society actually sets gifted children up to kind of fail.”

A short discussion will follow the video connecting its content to our Colorado’s ECEA (Exceptional Children’s Educational Act) law and how it may impact your gifted student. Find more information on ECEA here:
