Gifted and Talented News  


   
  Please consider participating in a survey conducted by Alberta Education. Setting the Direction for Special Education will create a new special education framework that includes vision, principles, policy, accountability and funding.  
  A Nation Deceived: What Parents, Teachers and Other Professionals Should Know About the Templeton National Report on Acceleration.  Debbi Andrews, MD and Debra Arnison-Sutton, both EABC executive committee members, discussed this important document at the 2005 SAGE conference. Resources from that presentation are posted here.

 
  Our IPP page has been updated and includes a link to the draft version of a new Alberta Education resource Individualized Program Planning. You will find many other useful links to Special Needs education.  
  A literature review on Understanding Giftedness: Generalizations From the Research and Resources For Educators and Parents is available on the Alberta Education web site. The review was assembled by Michael Pyryt, Ph.D. and Barbara Brydges, Librarian, Centre for Gifted Education, U of Calgary.  
  If you are looking for print copies of "Book 7: Teaching Students Who Are Gifted and Talented", "The Journey: A Handbook for Parents of Children Who Are Gifted and Talented", or "Book 3: Individualized Program Plans (IPPs)" the Alberta Learning Resources Centre offers these for sale. These documents are briefly described here. The Journey is available online here.
