Miami Gifted Children supports the intellectual growth and socioemotional well-being of gifted and twice-exceptional children. We want these incredibly intelligent, curious, creative, and intense children to have access to all the tools they need to grow up to be well-rounded individuals, successful not only in their academic lives and future careers, but in their personal lives as well. Our goal is to work hand-in-hand with the parents/guardians of gifted/2e children to nurture emotionally healthy individuals.
Miami Gifted Children started as a FB Parent Support Group where parents of gifted children (whether formally identified or suspected) could come together to ask questions, get support and a sense community. Since becoming a 501c3 we have collaborated with local child psychologists and gifted advocates to educate and provide resources to parents through in-person workshops, covering topics such as anxiety and depression in gifted children and adolescents, the socioemotional development of gifted children, coping skills and strategies, and empowering parents of gifted children. We look forward to continue collaborating with members of our community to provide this much needed service.
Part of our mission is to support the intellectual growth of gifted and twice-exceptional children; however we know that not all gifted children are identified in school for a variety of reasons. We want to make sure we reach those unidentified children throughout Miami. Because you never know where giftedness lies, we will be collaborating with local businesses, organizations and individuals to expose ALL children to a variety of STEAM enrichment.
