The Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of WA (Inc)
GATCA was established in 1978 and is a, not-for-profit, self-help organisation providing teachers and parents with the means to meet the special needs of gifted children at home or school.
“In evidence, all types of interest groups agreed that there is a problem with education of gifted children. These children have special needs in the education system; for many their needs are not being met; and many suffer underachievement, boredom, frustration and psychological distress as a result”.
The 2001 Senate Inquiry into Gifted Education.
Membership is open to all those wishing access to information and the tools to support gifted children academically and socially.
