Accommodations for Gifted Learners?

Do you think accommodations should be given for gifted learners? If a teacher differentiates instruction correctly by leveling the content and then using learning styles to help students learn, they are. With special education, the IEP contains accommodations a teacher MUST do to help students learn. Should that be extended to gifted students too? Should there be an IEP for gifted students? I often complain that there are not programs for my gifted daughter but that there are for kids at the opposite side of the spectrum. What do you think?
