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.
