GRO’s mission consists of two distinct, yet interrelated components which reflect its commitment to further the world’s understanding of giftedness through scientific research and to promote a comprehensive and accurate understanding through outreach.
The research arm of GRO is chartered with managing, funding, and distributing research that includes but is not limited to physiological, psychological, social and educational studies. GRO’s commitment to transparency is evidenced by its commitment to ensure that the research and resources it owns will be made available to the public at no charge.
The outreach arm of GRO is dedicated to promoting the understanding of giftedness through lectures, written material, and training. An important component of the outreach effort is GRO’s online resource library where the public can find material ranging from scientific studies on gifted physiology to articles that help parents and professionals better understand and meet the unique psychological, educational, and emotional needs of gifted individuals.
