Big Win for Gifted Kids, Big Win For All
Yesterday’s historic decision to provide 60 million dollars in funding support to assist schools in their provisions for gifted and talented students across Victorian State schools is an enormous win for gifted kids. This group has so often been overlooked in preference to supporting students with learning difficulties, but the research tells us that gifted kids need just as much support. Many do not reach their true potential or demonstrate their talent capabilities without suitable pro- grams that instruct, inspire, and support them, and we know that profoundly gifted students, those with particularly high IQ scores often struggle socially/emotionally, and organizationally.
