NUMATS Deadlines Approaching!

Dear Advocates,
Please share with your parents and educators this information. One NUMATS deadline is March 4, so hurry. If these parents have a highly able sixth grader through 9th grader (in the top 5% of their grade academically), they can still register for them to participate in NUMATS, the least expensive way to have concrete information about what your child’s potential can be. Once involved in this, they will receive much helpful information regarding options and suggestions of ‘what next?’
Questions and answers are available online. If they want to hear from ‘a mom’ who has been there, feel free to email Marie Brucker, m.brucker@comcast.net.
