About WAETAG

WAETAG is the cornerstone of three organizations whose main purpose is supporting gifted education in Washington state.  Together with the Northwest Gifted Child Association, which provides support for parents, and the Washington Coalition for Gifted Education, our advocacy and legislative arm, we offer a three-tiered approach to accomplishing our vision of a world where all students are recognized, respected and passionately supported for their unique needs, talents, and gifts.
