Professionals familiar with the Gifted

This is a far-from-comprehensive list of professionals often recommended for gifted children's' services, recommended by parents and other professionals.  These references can help families dealing with various aspects of giftedness, from family and child counselors, to twice exceptional resource specialists, to developmental optometrists.

As with any recommendation, you should consider each individual carefully, consider how they fit with your family beliefs, and consider this listing as you would a yellow pages entry.

For a collection of psychologists experienced with gifted children, many of whom offer the Stanford-Binet form L-M as a supplemental measure for gifted children, and are all recommended for their work with the gifted, visit our sister page Psychologists familiar with the Gifted.  Also read Selecting a Mental Health Professional for Your Gifted Child  by SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted).
