Supporting the Gifted/Highly Able Child

Attendees will gain insight into whom the Gifted Child is in their classroom, the types of supports needed, and how to create an inclusive, but still challenging environment for the Gifted child.  Attendees will also learn of the different program options for Gifted/Highly-Able children in the Surrey School District.
