Top blogs about gifted children, gifted education, and parenting

There are so many great blogs about gifted children, adolescents and adults, each of which provide a somewhat different perspective.

These blogs are written by teachers, parents, therapists, and researchers. They describe parenting dilemmas, personal triumphs and struggles, and research-based strategies that work. While there are also many wonderful websites, books, and blogsites specifically geared toward gifted education strategies, the blogs listed below were selected because of their focus on the social and emotional aspects of giftedness, parenting dilemmas, or advocacy.

If I have inadvertently overlooked a blog that you would like to suggest for the list, please let me know! (Some blogs may have been excluded, though, if they have not been updated within the past year, list only a few  posts, are affiliated with much larger organizations, or whose sole purpose is to sell a product.) Again, let me know your thoughts or recommendations in the comments section below.

  1. This is a great list. Note, too, that Gifted Homeschoolers Forum hosts a blog hop featuring parents of gifted kids. A round up links from the last hop can be found here: http://giftedhomeschoolers.org/blogs/blog-hop/

  17. Dr. Post,
    Thank you for listing these blogs. Do you know if they are all still functioning? I will check them out, as that will help me to answer my own question. I have been a long time advocate for our district's GT student population, even running an adovacy group for three years. Do you think there is room for more voice on GT education topics? I have been thinking of starting a blog, myself! Thanks, in advance!

    1. I don't know of any - but you might want to look at Davidson's Gifted's site. They often showcase their gifted students and there might be something there of interest. Also, check with NAGC which sometimes publishes articles written by gifted children. Perhaps your students could start their writing!
