The documents below compliment the information you will receive by post.

The 2009 Planning and Resource Guide for EXPLORE Test-takers
You need to download a copy of the Planning Guide below to assist you in making sense of your child’s results. Some of the information in this booklet relates to the US school system and is not directly applicable to the school programs in WA, however it will give you some idea of what might be appropriate for your child. (as the testing this year was run as a pilot program the documents have not been modified for WA). There is an excellent article starting on page 15.

Talent Spring 2009 – the newsletter from Centre for Talent Development (Northwestern University in Illinois)
containing resources and ideas for parents and educators of gifted children.
