Social skills workshops
Managing Big Emotions
This workshop will focus on the big emotions that gifted children often find hard to manage. Through books, and activities we will look at practical strategies to regulate behaviour and act when worried, angry, stressed or nervous. We will look at the role the brain plays in how we behave and also the use of strategies like breathing and relaxation in managing our actions.

Assessments and consultations.
Comprehensive Developmental Assessment
Perhaps you know something is going on with your child but are not sure what or maybe you are not even sure they really are gifted. Australian Gifted Support Centre offers a Comprehensive Developmental Assessment which is of great value if you are looking for where to find answers. The assessments have been designed to identify giftedness, to highlight strengths in your child and any possible learning differences, or issues. Your child’s situation will then be analysed and a formal written report will be completed.
Brief IQ and Achievement Assessments
Are you wondering if your child is gifted or achieving at a higher than expected level but would like some evidence? Not sure whether to go ahead and book that pricey private psychologist appointment? We can administer the Kaufmann Brief IQ Test as well as the Kaufmann Test of Educational Achievement. You will need to check if these are accepted as evidence for your school, but even if they aren’t, they are an opportunity to tell whether to make that potentially expensive appointment for a private IQ assessment.
Are you wondering what program is suitable for your child? Do you have questions about your child’s development? Are you looking for some general advice? Would you rather a personal one-on-one consultation for your child and how to manage their emotions? Are you struggling with how you are going and just want to talk to someone who understands parenting gifted children? Anything else? We offer these (and many other) types of consultations.
