    The earlier gifted children are identified, the earlier schools can differentiate teaching and learning to meet their needs. This professional learning presentation will take you through the process of using a multiple instrument screening process that is low-cost (cost of photocopying), time-efficient, and teacher deliverable; empowering schools and teachers to identify giftedness in year one students (age 6-7 years), and make informed decisions about differentiation in their specific school context. The process combines both qualitative and quantitative data collected from parents, teachers and children and has been validated against the Woodcock-Johnson (IV) Tests of Cognitive Abilities, Australian Adaptation. 

    Dr Eileen Slater is a teaching and research scholar within the School of Education at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia. Eileen is an early career researcher with over 20 years of experience as a teacher, school administrator and district curriculum consultant. Her research interests include Gifted Education, Science Education and Educational Measurement. She works closely with the Gifted community to advance community and professional understandings of the needs of gifted children. In all of her research projects, Eileen aims to better serve the needs of students by working with and supporting teachers in their schools and classrooms.

    Please note that this event is for teachers only. You will need to add your school’s name at the time of registration. Eileen will provide a thumb drive with everything you need and take you through how to use it in this workshop session.
