SAGE stands for Special and Gifted Education and the mission of our SAGE Committee is to provide an opportunity for families and teachers of students who learn differently to share resources and friendship. SAGE volunteers at both Council and local Chapter PTAs work together to provide education, communication and support for families just like you. And, we engage the teachers and administrators along the way.

SAGE sponsors various classes and seminars throughout the year to provide families and educators the latest information. Classes and seminars are typically free of charge.

Popular topics have included:

  • Life Planning for families with Special Needs
  • SENG Clinics (Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted)
  • Managing the Individualized Education Plan Process
  • Advocating for your child
  • Summer Camp Expo


The primary objective of SAGE is to promote dynamic communication between educators, families and the community. It’s through cooperation that we help ensure that all diverse learners derive the most from their education. We maintain a Facebook page and produce monthly enewletters for the SAGE community.
