Montreal, January 20, 2020 - The Federation of Private Educational Institutions invites education stakeholders and parents interested in the issue of giftedness to the conference Giftedness in education, February 17, 2020 in Drummondville.

Gifted children are numerous in our schools and, in recent years, they have been shown a growing interest. However, does the school know how to meet their needs? Who are these gifted students? Is there a typical portrait? Are there any mistaken beliefs about the gifted? How could we better support them in their school career? Is it really an advantage to be a gifted kid? These are all questions that will be asked during this day of training and reflection which will bring together school administrators, teachers, academics, professionals in private clinics and parents who are interested in this phenomenon.

The colloquium offers two major conferences and a series of workshops. Line Massé, Ph. D., full professor in the Department of Psychoeducation at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières will give the opening conference, which will address the following question: who are the gifted students? The other conference, The world of employment for the talented and gifted, will be presented by Dave Ellemberg, associate professor in the department of kinesiology at the University of Montreal and researcher at the Center hospitalier universitaire Sainte-Justine.
