I received this email from a reader last week. Here's what she wrote:
Can you possibly ask the GoAskMom readers for their opinions of the Duke TIP program? Our 4th grader has been invited to enroll and I wonder if it is worth the money at this age. Thank you!
Duke TIP is a talent identification program offered by Duke University. It "identifies gifted children and provides resources to nurture the development of these exceptionally bright youngsters," according to its website. Programs begin for qualified students at fourth grade and continue through their senior year in high school. For more information, check the website.
This mom would love to hear some first person experiences with the program. Please share if your child has been a part of it.
