Asynchronous development is that state of being "many ages at once", and a child intellectually advanced may be only age-appropriate (or even behind) emotionally or physically. Gifted children can sometimes feel like misfits when society boxes kids into strict age groups. Parents and educators can be overwhelmed unless they understand asynchronous dev

<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>A large part of my advocacy work in my doctoral program has me realizing how important it is to become civically involved. Here are some sites I have found at a local and national level.</div>
<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>Through my work as a Coordinator of Gifted Services at the elementary level, I have come across literature that helps to talk about social and emotional needs of Gifted children. These are meant to be used with elementary children in literature groups in a socratic seminar fashion. I try to group them according to age grouping.</div>
<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>Through my doctoral program and research in various aspects of gifted learning, I have come across a variety of works. When you look over these groupings, you will notice I list them as third party or original research. I have annotated the list for ease of use. You can also read my literature review on Asynchrony of Development for a summary of that literature.</div>
<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>Asynchrony of Development comes up often in my work as a Coordinator for Gifted Services. You can check out video links for definitions, some of my favorite videos for parents and teachers, and articles for various groups (Use with young children, intermediate aged children, teachers, parents).</div>
<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>A large part of my responsibilities this year has been adapting our school-wide identification process to meet district and state mandates. You can link to our school documents for identification, the CDE (Colorado Department of Education) Gifted Manual published at the beginning of 2016, and watch a few videos regarding the body of evidence collection process.</div>
<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>Here are some of my "go to" websites. Check the specific themes for links to specific areas of these websites.</div>
<div>Melissa Durtschi:</div><div>My Master's Degree work focused on Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Teaching. It focused on strategies and research in the field. I have integrated that into my Doctoral work on in Executive Equity Education, with an emphasis on Gifted Education. I am blending the worlds. Please see Donna Ford's work and the Diversity books referenced here for great resources on differentiating for and identifying our CLD Gifted Learners.</div>
<div>"Our aspiration is that this manual will help educators discover the true potential and talents of children who are English Language Learners before they become proficient in English. The inspiration comes from the gifted children who are in transition between two languages, two cultures, and the teachers who serve as their bridge."</div><div>(Sosa &amp; Colangelo, 2007)</div> www.educateiowa.gov

<div>Gifted Identity can mean a great many things. Explore these links to get a sense of what "giftedness" means. Also, visit the research section for a literature review on defining asynchrony in gifted learning.</div>
<div>Parenting a gifted child can be exhausting and overwhelming. Learning about giftedness and the unique traits and needs of your child will help you begin to advocate for their needs. One factor that contributes to your child's balance is programming, (differentiated instruction). Becoming informed is one of the first steps.</div>
