Thank you for your interest in contributing to the GHF® Dialogue! We welcome original submissions from anyone and everyone in the gifted/2e/3e community. Submission guidelines are laid out below. The Dialogue is made up of regular columnists who choose to write on a particular, approved theme, and writers who would like to propose a guest article.
The GHF® Dialogue is focused on providing current, research-based articles to parents to support them within the context of the GHF Mission.
“To empower every gifted family to make strategic, proactive, and intentional educational choices.”GHF Mission
When presenting a topic, please consider how parents can incorporate your writings into their daily lives. Parents of gifted children, whether they are in some type of school, homeschooling, or hybrid situation, all need to understand how to support the unique needs of their neurodiverse children. Education starts at home for all parents and the Gifted/2e/3e community has their own particular needs. Please reflect on your specialty and consider how you can provide current, research-based advice and support. GHF is building a team of regular columnists so that you can have the opportunity to dig deep into your bag and share on a theme that will make a difference.

For in-text citations, use Chicago’s notes style. For recommended reading lists, use bibliography style.
