A parent support group for gifted/talented youngsters meets each Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in Room 206 at the Cloverdale Recreation Centre, 6188 176 St.

The group provides an opportunity for parents of gifted children to learn more about giftedness, discuss challenges and share strategies for supporting gifted children.

Gifted children may be unusually intense and sensitive.

They can be rapid and curious learners, but may be bored, disruptive or underachieve, and their development, intellectual and emotional, is uneven.

They set very too-high expectations. Sometimes they have a learning disability in addition to being gifted.

For more information about the support group, call Niovi at 604-329-0850 or email npatsica@shaw.ca
