About us

Our mission is to support those who enhance the growth and development of gifted and talented children through education, advocacy, community building, and research. We aim to help parents and families, K-12 education professionals including support service personnel, and members of the research and higher education community who work to help gifted and talented children as they strive to achieve their personal best and contribute to their communities.

This association has connections with vibrant state association leaders and advocates in most countries. This network is critical to the success of programs and services international wide.

Working together we will achieve the vision where giftedness and high potential are fully recognized, universally valued, and actively nurtured to support children from all backgrounds in reaching for their personal best and contributing to their communities. Through the year 2021, the International Association for Talented Kids Board of Directors charges the International Office to achieve the vision by focusing on Minds, Policies, and Practices.
