Conversations with CAGT

CAGT is excited for our 2023-2024 Season 4 of our Conversations with CAGT! This season we will again be streaming live on Facebook the first and third Tuesdays at 5:00 pm MDT. You can also view any CWCs you missed from Seasons 1, 2, and 3 on our Resource page under Conversations with CAGT.

Each 1st and 3rd Tuesday on the month at 5:00 pm MDT, we will live stream a 20 – 30 minute presentation, followed by a Q&A with a local or national expert on a topic current and relevant to our GT community. Please join us for these informational conversations!

This past Tuesday Julie Skolnick joined us to chat about her new book Gifted and Distractible. Julie discussed her The Cycle for Success, and her acronym PRAISE which stands for six categories of strategies you can use to support gifted children. She also addresses advocacy as outlined in the book which is based on collaboration. If you missed this informative session you can find it on the Resource page, or access it on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel.

Our next CWC guest on October 3rd is Dr. Deborah Ruf, who will present Is High Intelligence a Ticket to Ease and Prosperity? Not Exactly. Dr. Ruf will share that her audiences are full of smart people who want to know more about giftedness. She has found that it would be unusual for any audience members not to be gifted themselves. So, the interest of most audience members is about how gifted children turn out as adults and what does being super smart really mean as far as future social, emotional, and fiscal well-being? And, of course, what do we do for gifted children during their childhoods that will increase the likelihood that they grow into self- supporting, contributing members of society with good emotional health as part of it? Please join us live at 5:00 on our Facebook page to hear her session and join the Q&A with Dr. Ruf.

If you missed this CWC, it is totally worth watching or any other session you may have missed you can view them on our Resource page at

COVID-19 Update / Resources

During this difficult time of CDC and statewide precautions due to Covid-19 CAGT wants you to know that we are continuing our work advocating for the needs of our gifted children. Normal operations are still in place except for any in person activities. Plans for our fall conference have begun and we are following all legislative issues that may impact our GT students. We remain committed to supporting our community of gifted learners through this challenging time and to help families who must remain home throughout the rest of the school year. Below are some links from our national organization and other expert sources on how to support your gifted children’s needs at home.
