New York City Dept. of Ed has released gifted and talented handbooks the upcoming testing seasons that starts in January, 2015! The DOE is hosting information sessions in all 5 boroughs (dates and locations below). Registration for the NYC G&T test opens online next Wed., Oct. 8th so there’s nothing to do until then (except of course start practicing with your child!). After a quick review of the handbooks it doesn’t look like there are any major changes to the admissions process from last year. The OLSAT and NNAT-2 tests are still given to our talented tots to qualify for a seat in the gifted and talented program in New York City.

Go here to find out the the nitty-gritty details in the Gifted and Talented Handbook.

Here are the details on the info. sessions hosted by the NYC Dept. of Ed. Please note these information regurgitate the same information that’s contained in the handbook.

I was looking for a way to email you. We are a group of parents of G&T 1st grade classes at PS 166 Q who’d like to exchange ideas and experiences with other G&T parents from successful G&T schools and programs. We’ve been hitting the wall with our school’s admin b/c they’re not willing to change much of their curriculum to really adapt to our kids’ needs and expectations! I’ve been following your blog when I found out about G&T education and have been reading your updates ever since!!

Please let me know how we can reach out to you and learn from your experience.
