Since 1982, CTD has evolved from a single focus on talent identification to a multi-faceted operation with four central goals: talent identification, talent development, research and advocacy. Over the years, CTD has created a variety of research-driven, thriving programs. CTD has educated, inspired and supported more than 500,000 families during this time.
By continually assessing programs, conducting research and surveying participants, CTD remains at the forefront of gifted education. Today, CTD serves the gifted community through summer, weekend, online, civic education, and talent assessment programs, as well as a multitude of resources for families and educators, supporting students PreK through Grade 12.
