    We have received quite a few public requests from parents in Australia recently, and we decided to create this part of the forum to provide a starting point for those directed to this forum. Please feel free to post here if you have anything to add. Also, feel free to create a new thread for any other country or region.

    Gifted and Creative Services Australia (

    World Council for Gifted and Talented Children (
