Gifted Children

A University of Melbourne researcher is using her knowledge of gifted children in their formative educational years to help better inform and teach these bright youngsters.

Visions talks to Dr Anne Grant, a former pre-school teacher, who followed the lives of seven gifted children for one full academic year in Melbourne watching them interact and integrate into preschool and prep. She also talked with parents and teachers to gain a full understanding of how gifted children manage and integrate in their first years of formal education.
