Welcome to Parent Zone

“The child supplies the power but the parents have to do the steering.”     
Benjamin Spock


The Academy seeks to provide parents with the insight, knowledge, skills and advice to nurture their gifted or high-ability children.  To achieve this aim, we organise parent education programmes and have established the Consultation and Assessment Centre to provide parents with information and advice.  We aim to take the journey together with parents for the growth of the gifted children.

Schools and organisations are welcome to call 3940 0104 to make an appointment with us for free outreach introductory seminars about giftedness for parents.  Customised workshops and consultation services for a modest charge are offered upon arrangement.
