GERRIC at the UNSW School of Education are proud to present a nine-part Gifted Parenting series.
It’s common for parents of gifted children to feel confused about the educational needs of their gifted child. Sometimes, the advanced development of the abilities of a gifted child outpaces the child's physical development, and results in frustration for both parent and child. Additionally, challenges exist for parents in understanding the affective needs of gifted children, which may be very different to the rest of the population.
We hope that this series will assist parents to develop a greater understanding of their gifted child's needs both at home and at school; interact with other parents of gifted children; and learn from current research and experts in the field of gifted education.
Sessions 1-8 were delivered online in September 2020, led by our GERRIC academics: Associate Professor Dr. Jae Yup Jung, Dr. Geraldine Townend and Dr. Peta Hay.
Session 9 on Homeschooling will be presented on 22 May 2021. You can view the full session information here.
All sessions are available through a 'later' subscription, for those unable to attend live. The latest ticketing information can be found here.
