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. Given our current website upgrade, it may be easiest to view the events calendar, including South-Coast Sub Branch events, here: EVENTS CALENDAR JUL-DEC 2017. (Be sure to check regularly for updates and changes.) Be sure to also check out the "news and events" section below for our upcoming celebrations, and the "sub branch" tab above for more from the south coast!
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’.

GFSG Inc will be looking to add webinar capabilities to our new website, and to develop a bank of recorded presentations for members to access online.
