Abstract

After many years of virtual neglect, the last two or three years have witnessed a remarkable surge of interest and activity in the area frequently referred to as “gifted and talented children.” This development in Australia is partly indigenous, but to a considerable degree it seems to parallel (and to draw inspiration from) similar movements in other countries. In a very short period of time we have moved from a situation where concern for gifted children was generally dismissed an unnecessary or elitist, to a situation where the education of gifted children is now occupying the attention of all major educational authorities.
