 At The Center, we are passionate about providing services and support for gifted learners, their families, and their educators. If you are a student, teacher, parent, administrator, advocate – The Center has resources for all friends of gifted learners.

The resources complied on our website are either authored, co-authored, or edited by The Center for Gifted Studies' Executive Director Dr. Julia Roberts, Associate Director Dr. Tracy Inman, or other members of the gifted education faculty at Western Kentucky University.  Whether you are a teacher looking for differentiated lessons, a parent wondering how to challenge your child, or an advocate hoping to spur change in the classroom, these books and articles will aid you in your mission. As a bonus if you purchase one our books by following the links provided on our site, 10 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Council for Exceptional Children - The Association for the Gifted. (CEC-TAG).

Also included here are links to The Center's magazine, The Challenge; and to information on and materials created by two grants The Center has received from the Jacob K.
