    Subject: [OGTOC] ADMIN - future conference NEWSFLASH

    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.

    Helen Dudeney is a private consultant who has been actively involved
    in working with gifted children, their parents and teachers for the
    past 16years. During this time she has run programs for 3 �15 year
    old children and their families and conducted seminars, workshops
    and in service training for parents and teachers about giftedness.
    Her consultancy, Australian Gifted Support Centre specialises not
    only in gifted children, but also those who are visual spatial
    learners. She has completed the Certificate of
    Gifted Education and Master of Adult Education and is currently
    undertaking doctoral research in the area of Gifted Visual Spatial
    learners. For the past 16 years she has been a member of the NSW
    Association for Gifted and Talented Children Committee and held the
    position of President for 8 years.

    Please be sure to mark this on your calendar.

    Kindest regards,
    Conference Coordinator
    List Owner

    I think you just send an email and ask to be put on the list. Many people open a seperate email, such as "gmail" to get the conferences, since they generate about a hundred responces a day.
