This page provides links to and descriptions of resources for gifted and twice-exceptional children and adolescents and their families, as well as teachers and counselors. I do not endorse or promote any of these resources specifically, but have attempted to compile a list of resources that are recognized by families, researchers, and educators in the field of gifted education. I welcome any suggestions for additions or adjustments to this list.
