Transcript of Peers: Finding Pots of Gold - Austin

Family Fun! Gifted people develop asynchronously which means often their peers will not be of the same age. Interestingly, as adults we don't segregate or work by age so it is an artificial environment for children. Once you let go of looking for same age peers, the world opens up a lot! Mentors Sometimes you can find clubs to join
Sometimes you have to start them yourself. Clubs Volunteer My experience has been when my girls volunteered with others passionate about the same cause, people forgot to ask how old they were..... Summer Programs www.awesomemath.org/summer-program/

blog: ameanderingjourney.wordpress.com/ Online Communities and classes for Gifted Kids I imagine the journey to finding true peers as a treasure hunt. Whether at the end of a rainbow or where X marks the spot, it is not an easy journey for many gifted children and their parents. My kids are certainly the captains of this pirate ship but they need a navigator and that is me. I hear word of mouth legends and myths but where is the map? The truth is, there is no map. I hope today's resources help you navigate to better peer relations for your child. Peers My daughter thought peers
