First Episode: 2023

For many gifted children and their parents, schooling can be a confusing, difficult and sometimes lonely journey. How’s that even possible? Surely the name says it all, it’s a gift. But the perception of giftedness and the reality can be vastly different. Parents might anticipate their articulate and very bright toddler will arrive at school and breeze through, only to see the opposite happen! This podcast will help parents identify gifted underachievement and provide practical advice on how to turn things around. Kriss Muskett, GATCA committee member will share the knowledge she’s acquired through decades of research and assisting hundreds of families on their journeys. GATCA was established in 1978 and is a, not-for-profit, self-help organisation providing teachers and parents with the means to meet the special needs of gifted children at home or school.
