|Description||The Association for Bright Children of Ontario is an all-volunteer, provincially incorporated support and advocacy group, with many chapters across Ontario. It is dedicated to providing information and support to parents of bright, gifted, and dual diagnoses children and adolescents through newsletters, networking, an annual conference and local workshops. It offers the parents' voice to local school boards, educators, professional groups and the Ontario Ministry of Education. |
|Eligibility||Participation is open to anyone interested in the needs of bright and gifted children. We do not test children, nor do we require "proof" that they are bright. ABC represents the needs of Spec Ed/Gifted children and the voices of their parents at the SEAC (Special Education Action Committee) table at York Region District School Board. |
ABC believes that all children, including bright children, deserve to be accepted for who they are. They deserve the opportunity to realize their potential as fully as possible.
ABC is interested in the special needs of all bright and gifted children, regardless of linguistic or socio-economic background.
New chapter members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
