The NAGC Spanish brochure, Helping Your Gifted Child to Succeed, was developed by the NAGC Parent Editorial Content & Advisory Board with many collaborators from across the U.S. and beyond, including the Mexican Association for the Gifted, and gifted thought leaders in South America. The goal is to help educate Hispanic and Latino parents on the traits and characteristics of giftedness, how to identify high-ability children, programming available, and how to support gifted children at home, school, and play so they may reach their potential.
