DD12 is very intelligent. She loves reading and learning. She is most passionate about science but also loves psychology, Judaic studies, history... She B"H has friends at school but she feels she can't share certain 'nerdier' parts of herself with them and asked me to try to find other girls for her to socialize with who she can better relate to. Are there after school/Sunday clubs or summer programs in the greater Lakewood community that cater to gifted preteen girls?

There’s really no resources available for gifted kids which is a shame. Someone was advertising in the weeklies to reach out if you have young gifted daughters which I meant to do but I forgot.

So glad to see so many responses! Does anyone have any suggestions of someone to run the group/teach? Maybe someone knows of a good curriculum or something they can do? Or would your daughters be interested in just getting together and hanging out?

I will try to brainstorm this week and see what I can come up with! Maybe contacting a beloved teacher and seeing if she'd like to be paid for putting a club together....

I had an 11 year old 6th grade dd who would so benefit from a gifted program and like minded friends. Also in Lakewood.

Where did you all get your daughters diagnosed as gifted? I haven’t found gifted specialists near Lakewood Sad I would love not to travel to ny.
