It's hard to imagine that a gifted child could have learning disabilities, and yet is often the case. Gifted students are just as likely as any other student to struggle with ADHD, dyslexia, sensory-processing, or a litany of other learning challenges. The interaction of giftedness and learning disabilities in a child's growth creates an extremely complex challenge for parents and educators alike.
NWGCA is one of the region's foremost advocates supporting gifted and highly capable children. They provide consulting for individual district parent groups, run educational seminars and workshops, and are even called upon to speak at Washington State legislative hearings.
