Douglas County Association for Gifted and Talented
Through Their Eyes: A Wider Lens of Gifted
We have something for everyone: teachers, families, counselors, administrators, advocates, and even those who are new to gifted education. The CAGT Conference is considered among the nation's top gifted education events.
The conference spans two days (October 19-20) and will include esteemed keynotes, a wide variety of relevant breakout sessions, Family Institute, Awards, Student Art Contest, and much more.
CAGT Family Institute
Family Institute is designed specifically for parents, guardians, grandparents and any adult who plays an integral role in raising their gifted children. During the event, our presenters will share their expertise about how to support the unique academic and social-emotional needs of these children when at home. The Family Institute takes place on Monday, October 19th from 5:30 pm to 9:00.
