Many of us wonder if homeschooling is a better option for our families and our child. Is it on your mind a lot and you just need a boost to get the process going? Do you want to understand why so many parents of gifted and twice-exceptional children are homeschooling? Are you already homeschooling and want even more support for your efforts?

The environment of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) has left many of our gifted students nationwide neglected. More parents are considering homeschooling as school districts zero in on our lower performers with programs that are detrimental to our gifted youth.
