Gifted Testing in or near Hillsborough County and Pasco County, FLSince we are about to launch our gifted pilot program in the Fall of 2014, I thought that it would be helpful to share contact information related to gifted testing & assessments. The following are listings of psychologists who offer gifted testing and assessments in or near Pasco County and Hillsborough County Florida. I am sharing their contact information as they are all licensed and have been listed by other gifted programs, both public and private, in the Greater Tampa region.
I have not personally used their services, but have found all of them to be very professional and helpful when I have contacted them.

These are some of the links that I find to be helpful. I used to have many more listings related to Montessori, when the boys were young. I plan to create an updated Montessori links page and an updated early childhood and primary education links page for those blog followers or Pinterest followers who follow my Montessori boards, or my early childhood / primary education boards.
I have added more links related to gifted education, as those are the links I am currently using for my sons and for Sunrise Learning Lab's gifted pilot program.
Hope that these links are helpful to you too...

Also, here is a link to a collection of You Tube videos that correlate with Core Knowledge - Grade 3. Little Bro will be starting Grade 3 this fall. Even though he is working at an accelerated pace, I like to see resources such as these You Tube videos, that correlate with what other grade 3 students would be learning.
This list was compiled by Kelly Flick, so a huge thanks to Kelly for compiling this for all homeschool families who use Core Knowledge in their homeschooling! There are 33 videos in this compilation. It lists various videos that tie in with music and poetry appreciation for grade 3. A few of the selections might be ones that Kelly has added personally, as I did not see all 33 in the resources list from CK...but these are all perfect tie ins! So thanks again, Kelly!
