WA's association for gifted support, advocacy and resources
Welcome to Gifted WA
We’re dedicated to meeting the social, emotional and intellectual needs of young people of higher cognitive potential.
Whether you want to learn more about giftedness, twice exceptionality, attend educational events, network, find resources or, help to advocate, our passionate team will help you.
Our work ranges from creating events for gifted parents and families, professional development for teachers, networking, research, offering support for people in crisis, working with low socio-economic schools and meeting with policymakers.
Calling All Entrepreneurial Kids!!
Is your child always working out different ways to make money? Forget the warm lemonade and soggy cakes, Gifted WA is thrilled to announce our first business workshop for young people aged 6 to 12 years.
At this workshop, your child will learn how to turn an idea into a business with Raquel Medrano, who started her first business at age 10.
As a professional business coach, Raquel has impacted various sized enterprises both in Australia and South America. As a mother to four gifted children, she understands how to help gifted kids bring their ideas to fruition.
Numbers are capped, so book ASAP. Held Sunday morning, October 28. Members FREE, Non-Members $20
