On the first, macro level, advocacy involves arguing the case for gifted and talented students in general, and for particular groups such as those from minoritised cultures, boys, girls, young children, adolescents and twice-exceptional students. These needs are generally addressed through conference papers, position statements and other presentations, as well as print and video resources.

On the second, micro level, advocacy involves addressing the needs of a particular gifted and talented individual, and possibly siblings as well. This may include supporting parents/caregivers by providing advice about ways to handle lack of appropriate provision for their children at school.
