What is The NAGC Mile Marker Series™?
For many years, the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) has served as a resource for parents
and caregivers seeking a wide range of advice.  These information seekers (hundreds each month) have
needs all over the map—from the most basic question about giftedness in their young child to tips for
effective advocacy in their state houses.
Thanks to the efforts of a proactive group of NAGC parent volunteers, The Mile Marker Series™ was developed to provide “just-
in-time” resources for parents. This CD-ROM follows along with a parent on their journey — a journey of ever broadening support
for a single gifted child to gifted children in a school building and even support for gifted services across a whole state.  NAGC
understands the power and influence of a well-educated parent. That’s why The Mile Marker Series™ offers many access points to
more than 350+ informative resources on the CD, resources unavailable in any other location. Think of it as your GPS for the world
of gifted and talented education.
Parent Day attendees may purchaseThe NAGC Mile Marker Series™ onsite for just $18!
