FAQs

Is this course suitable for 'beginners'?

The workshop will begin with a brief overview of the definition of giftedness & characteristics of gifted children for first time attendees. However, the main focus of the session is the school environment. Parents seeking some introductory knowledge can tick a box in their registration form and will be sent some additional information.
