Support for Families

If you’ve arrived at this page of the site then you probably have a gifted child, or at least suspect that it’s a possibility! Connection with other parents who also live in Perth is important and we aim to create events that will help parents network with each other. We aim to provide talks and parent education evenings to support you on your journey.

Each year, we hold several events in Perth and the best way to find out more about these is to become a member. This will also mean that you will receive a discount to these events, and the other associated benefits of belonging to Gifted WA. Please feel free to get in touch via our contact form if you would like to join us!

Below you can find links to websites that will help you better understand your child. We are a fledgling organisation and in time we hope to add to these resources. In the meantime, please bear with us!

Listed here you will find websites that are dedicated to supporting the needs of gifted young people. If you have questions relating to identifying gifted children, academic concerns, or simply wish to better understand your child’s social and emotional development then you may find the below sites of interest.
