Gifted Children


For ages

Is your child doing things earlier than you would expect? 

From birth, some children show signs that they are progressing faster than usual. This can be in one or more areas of development. 

No one knows your child better than you. If you have noticed that your child is developing differently to other children, they might be gifted. 

The Tasmanian Association for the Gifted provides support and resources for parents of gifted children. To find out more, visit the Tasmanian Association for the Gifted website.  

Early entry to school 

Some gifted children benefit from starting school early. 

Early entry to school is an option for children who are formally recognised as gifted.
