Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of South
GTCASA is a volunteer organisation committed to enhancing the social, emotional and intellectual development of children and adolescents with high intellectual potential.

GTCASA is always looking for energetic volunteers who understand giftedness and believe in helping to unlock the potential of these special needs children.
… SATURDAY CLUB -TERM 2 2022 Details
We have been unable to proceed once again with sessions details for Term 2 owing to the uncertainty over return to school issues associated with COVID-19. We hope to be able to provide a couple of Zoom sessions and further details should be available soon.
Building Inclusive Gifted Programs to Enfranchise and Empower All Gifted Learners
21st May 11am – 1 pm Eastern Standard Time ($5 for GTCASA members)
The hallmark of excellence in gifted education insists on inclusivity and equitable identification, along with vibrant, culturally diverse programming practices and culturally responsive classrooms. In this session the presenter discusses methods and approaches that can help integrate the needs of our diverse gifted learners into every aspect of school. Focusing on enfranchising and empowering all gifted learners, Dr. Brulles will share practical steps like-minded advocates can make to build, support and maintain inclusive gifted practices and programs. Dr. Brulles will also discuss gifted cluster grouping, one such inclusive model that allows gifted-identified students to learn together all day, every day; enfranchises underrepresented populations; and yields desirable achievement outcomes for all students.
