Gifted Families Support Group Incorporated is a not for profit association designed to support families and educators of gifted children. Run solely by volunteers, GFSG Inc. focusses on bringing together ‘like-minds’, providing a vast array of supportive events and highlighting the needs of gifted children within our community.

GFSG Inc. is affiliated with the Australian Association for the Education of Gifted and Talented Children (AAEGT) and represents NSW on the AAEGT Board. Through this affiliation, GFSG Inc. is able to expand the support we give to our members by taking their concerns to a national level and open up new opportunities. All our members automatically become members of the AAEGT, with options to subscribe to their biannual journal at members rates, and to receive discounts to events hosted by other gifted associations.

 GFSG Inc. is also affiliated with GLD Australia; a national online learning community responding to the needs of gifted children and gifted adults with specific learning disability and other learning challenges.

To attend a GFSG Inc. event, children are not required to sit an IQ test.

GFSG Inc. is a place where we hope you can feel ‘at home’ in a world where our children often seem the ‘odd ones out’.

Melinda Gindy- President of GFSG Inc.

  Seminar- Overexcitabilities? Or just plain oversights and oversimplifications? 

Have you been told that your gifted child has ‘overexcitabilities’? Perhaps you’ve been warned that gifted children are frequently being ‘misdiagnosed’ with disability, when in fact all they really have is ‘overexcitabilities’? And maybe you have even been advised that it’s best not to seek professional advice, but instead to use behavioural ‘either/or’ checklists to figure out for yourself whether your gifted child’s worrying symptoms are indicative of a ‘real’ disability or just an ‘overexcitability’? Find out more at our Seminar on 2nd November 2015 presented by Carol Barnes- national coordinator for GLD Australia.
