Who we are

15 Aug 2020

Gifted Services is dedicated to providing information and advice in all aspects of giftedness, covering topics such as meeting the emotional, intellectual, physical and educational needs of gifted individuals. Unique gifted individuals learning style and self expressions are open for discussion.

The original inception of this idea was in 1979. We know about emotional issues, intensity, sensitivity, perfectionism, and the very real needs of visual-spatial learners.

 

Our Aim

This site aims to assist parents and teachers to find the information, support and advice. We support equal access education and believe education should no longer be about money. The learning potential of our children should be explored in full.
