About Me
The Illinois Association for Gifted Children is an organization of parents, educators, and others committed to the education and development of children with diverse gifts and talents. We educate, support, and influence those who touch the lives of children and focus our energies to meet the needs of children with gifts and talents in Illinois.

The Illinois Association for Gifted Children is a not-for-profit corporation that was established in 1989 by a small group of educators who wanted to create a voice within Illinois to further the opportunities to better understand the educational, social/emotional needs of gifted individuals. To that end, gifted educators, parents of gifted children, and other individuals continue to support the IAGC mission and related goals.

To promote advocacy efforts that benefit gifted and talented children by establishing an effective political network.
To develop standards of quality for what teachers and other professionals need to know about educating children with gifts and talents.
To develop standards to evaluate the appropriateness of programs and services which affect the lives of children with gifts and talents.
To foster professional growth of educators by providing opportunities to learn about standards of quality for understanding and teaching children with gifts and talents.
To network with others by disseminating news and information to educators and parents through regular communication in the form of a newsletter, journal and the Internet.
To work with the Illinois State Board of Education, universities, and other organizations that serve children with gifts and talents.
