http://resources.prufrock.com/ If you're interested in following some blogs by parents of gifted children, check this site out.
http://www.hoagiesgifted.org/parents.htm Hoagies is a well-respected source of information on giftedness.
http://www.aagts.org/ Here is our local organization for Albuquerque. If you aren't already a member, I'd encourage you to think about joining. AAGTS goes to bat for gifted education whenever the legislature threatens to remove the program from special education (which is about every year!). They also host yearly conferences here in ABQ and publish 4 newsletters a year.
