Welcome

We are a volunteer alliance of parents, educators, and professionals who have come together to support the needs of New York’s gifted and twice-exceptional (2E) student population and their families.

We want to:

  • Build awareness and understanding of what it means to be gifted or twice exceptional
     

  • Promote federal, statewide, and local policies and initiatives that support and protect these underrepresented children in our schools
     

  • Create community for gifted and twice exceptional children and their families
