The Tasmanian Association for the Gifted is pleased to announce the release of the program for its biennial conference No Limits!

The program features keynote speaker Leslie Graves, President of the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children WCGTC, invited speakers Carol Barnes, Debbie Youd, and Michele Juratowitch, and many other local and interstate presenters.

Carol, Debbie and Michele are well known within Australia in the field of gifted education and between them hold a wealth of skills and experience at school and university level in many different roles.

Presentation topics range across differentiating learning, parenting, managing challenging behaviours, boredom, happiness and social & emotional needs to showcasing programs operating in schools; there is something for everyone.

Raising and educating gifted children poses a range of challenges that are not well understood within the community and this conference gives people a chance to not only learn from the presenters but also to make connections with others facing similar challenges.

The conference, No Limits, is aimed at exploring ways to educate, inspire and empower those raising and working with gifted students to be the best possible supporters and advocates for Tassie's gifted children.
