We would like to inform our readers that as of May 2013 The Irish Gifted Education Blog, Gifted Advocacy and Support (GAS) Wicklow/Dublin, and Dazzled and Frazzled no longer have any association with the following organisations:
- Gifted and Talented Ireland
- Gifted and Talented Network Ireland
Through Gifted Advocacy and Support, we have been supporting parents and advocating for gifted children in Ireland since 2009. We are continuing to work with a strong group to advocate on behalf of gifted learners in Ireland. Our core committee is comprised of five members most of whom have been involved with GAS from its earliest meetings, and our total membership now extends to more than fifty families. We have been active in encouraging other groups to set up similar support networks throughout Ireland and continue to work for grassroots, community-based group structures. The progress we have made speaks for itself but we need to keep moving forward to achieve our long-term goal of a better understanding of the needs of gifted children within Ireland’s education system in the future.
We appreciate the support we have received from friends far and wide and hope that we can continue to rely on your encouragement and involvement as we move on.
