Western Australia's association for gifted support, advocacy and resources

Families

Our mission is to provide professional learning, training and networking opportunities for Western Australian professionals working to provide education, assessment, counselling, support and other services for gifted children and adolescents. We believe that teachers, school and university leaders, psychologists, counsellors, researchers and other professionals should have the opportunity to access each other in order to build their skills and increase their understanding of students who have exceptional potential and ability.

We seek to increase professional understanding of the academic, social and emotional needs of gifted young people in Western Australia. We believe that together we can play a key role in helping our gifted young people fulfil their potential and contribute in unique and innovative ways to the life, work and culture of Western Australia.

If you work with gifted children and/or adolescents we would love to hear from you so we can keep you updated with any events or information that may help you in your role. Please feel free to complete our contact form for more information.
