Many of us are concerned for children whose school performance is not commensurate with their exceptional intellectual and creative abilities. We have experienced the frustration which grows out of our failure to help these children understand and appreciate their abilities, develop their talents and use their abilities later in life.
AEGUS serves as an advocacy group on behalf of gifted underachieving students. AEGUS recognizes these students can be found in populations regardless of racial, ethnic, religious or socioeconomic backgrounds; and areas of special learning, physical or emotional needs. The major purpose of this organization is to focus attention and research efforts on able learners whose potential may be unrecognized, undeveloped or not nurtured.
