DISTANCE LEARNING

Some children who are gifted and who experience disabilities have a difficult time succeeding in a structured school gifted program. However, these children might be very academically successful, with some assistance, using a computer in a distance learning course. For information on the availability of distance learning, contact the regional talent search program nearest your geographical area or one of the university-based centers listed in Fact Sheets: University-Based Gifted Centers. If you are considering distance education, be sure to check the homeschooling resources on our website.
