GHF's mission is to support, educate and advocate for gifted and twice exceptional children, their families, and the professionals who serve them, as they pursue alternative, lifelong educational paths.
We fulfill our mission through a variety of outreach efforts. We reach hundreds of thousands of gifted/2e families through our social media. Through GHF Online classes, we offer online classes geared to these unique students. With GHF Press, we publish books to inform, inspire, and entertain gifted/2e people and the professionals who serve them. We maintain a list of worldwide regional contacts, people ready to share information and offer support. We offer free brochures about gifted and 2e issues aimed at families, educators, and healthcare professionals. And these are only a few of the ways we work to fulfill our mission!
None of this would be possible without support from people like you! Your donations, supporting memberships, and affiliate purchases help fund our outreach, advocacy, and support.
GHF works hard to give you what you need to be informed and successful.

Giftedness comes with intensities, high needs, and special needs. Activities and moments other families take for granted can become a planning nightmare when a gifted child, or two, is involved. Conflicting needs can lead to strained relationships between siblings and parents. How can families manage the various needs giftedness brings to the table, while creating a closer family, and maybe even while having fun? Learn from the GHF Bloggers who have managed to walk this path and come out stronger and happier.
GHF Bloggers participate in Blog Hops throughout the year. Check out our Blog Hops Archives to discover the answer to your questions, find the support you need, or have a laugh, knowing you're not alone.
GHF's regional contacts are volunteers who share information and offer support to people in their area seeking to learn about gifted and 2e resources. But our regional contacts don't wait for people to come to them. They go out and meet people, speak at conferences, set up information sessions, and more! To learn more about this active bunch of volunteers, go to the "Regional Contacts" section of the GHF Blog. If you're interested in becoming a regional contact, contact our Outreach Manager.
