    Alabama Association for Gifted Children

    The Alabama Association for Gifted Children (AAGC) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization of parents, educators, and community stakeholders working together to advocate for education that meets the unique academic and affective needs
    of gifted children and youth in Alabama. AAGC is a state affiliate of the National Association of Gifted Children (NAGC)

    National Association for Gifted Children is an organization of educators, administrators, and parents who unite to address the unique needs of children and youth with demonstrated gifts and talents as well as those children who may be able to develop their talent potential with appropriate educational experiences. Their website contains a wealth of information about giftedness and gifted education as well as listings of summer programs for gifted students.

    The Association for the Gifted (TAG) was organized as a division of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) in 1958.  TAG plays a major part in helping both professionals and parents work more effectively with one of our most precious resources: the gifted child.  The primary purpose of this organization is to promote the welfare and education of children and youth with gifts, talents, and/or high potential.

    Duke University Talent Identification Program identifies academically talented students and provides programs and services to support the development of their optimal potential.  The TIP at Duke is one of several US regional centers and serves the southeastern states including Florida.

    The mission of the Davidson Institute for Talent Development is to recognize, nurture and support profoundly intelligent young people and to provide opportunities for them to develop their talents to make a positive difference.  Formed in 1999, the institute is funded by Bob and Jan Davidson; it also has received grants from the Davidson Foundation to support the Davidson Fellows award and GT-CyberSource, a searchable database for information on giftedness.
