Did you know?
Gifted children vary a lot. Some are great at sports. Some have disabilities. Children can be gifted or not along one or more of a large number of dimensions. Labels like "gifted" need to be used carefully as all children are different.
Information Centre Items
We have a huge range of articles intended to assist parents, care-givers, teacher/ducators and others interested in gifted children and their issues.
The majority of articles will be restricted to Financial Members with just an introductory paragraph available for non-Financial Members so they know what they are missing! Please become a Financial Member both to gain full access and to help the NSWAGTC work in the interests of gifted children.
If you would like to contribute an item to help us help our readers, please:
The NSWAGTC encourages a wide range of quality resource items. Each item is nonetheless written by individuals with varying experience and perspectives of gifted children and represents the author's views, rather than necessarily those of the NSWAGTC (unless they are marked as Position Statements).
Comments are invited
We also invite useful comments on our selection of articles, by both Registered and Financial Members. Comments provide an opportunity to communicate with authors and to augment the information provided by an item.
