It is with great excitement that I share the news about another
OGTOC conference. Here are the details about our next guest expert
who is from Australia:)))


Helen Dudeney

Date: June 12 -14, 2006

Title: Gifted Visual Spatial Learners

Short description:
Underachievement in gifted children is known to be a major problem.
While there are many factors that could lead to this, one that has
been gaining greater understanding and attention recently is the
occurrence of children who are both gifted and also have a learning
disability. Until recently there was little real understanding or
acceptance of the possibility that a child could be academically
gifted and yet not be performing at school due to some developmental
difference that was getting in the way of their success. This
conference will explore the characteristics and needs of gifted
visual spatial learners.

in working with gifted children, their parents and teachers for the
