Bio

Founded in February 2008 by Margaret Keane, Giftedkids.ie was launched as a support website for Irish gifted children, their parents and teachers. It was unique in that it was the first website in Ireland to actively meet the needs of parents, teachers and exceptionally able children from an Irish perspective. The website currently acts as a signpost for resources and has a huge range for parents, teachers and children, including a very popular online community forum where members can share their experience of parenting or teaching a gifted child. Giftedkids.ie is run on an entirely voluntary basis by a dedicated group of parents and teachers who contribute their time and expertise completely free of charge. Mission Statement It is our aim to help other parents and teachers to find the information, support and advice that they may need in order to effectively parent, teach and support the gifted children in their care. Exceptionally able and twice exceptional children can come from all socio-economic groups and from all parts of the country. It is the ethos of Giftedkids that all children, regardless of their home circumstances, should have equal access to an appropriate education, specific to their individual educational and unique social/emotional needs. Gifted education should be about ability not ability to pay.
