I think my child is gifted. How do I know for sure?
Without academic indicators, educators, let alone parents, find it difficult to determine if a child is gifted. Even tests such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC), a roughly two-hour oral test, don't always accurately reflect giftedness. However, schools that offer gifted programs do use tests and various assessments of intellectual, behavioural and other factors, so that's the best place to start.

Looking for a school offering a gifted program? Here's a list of schools for gifted kids to begin your search.
Good day, do you have a list of french or french immersion schools? The search results include many schools that are not French (perhaps they just offer it as a class) and so was looking for a proper list. Thanks!
Our 7 year old son has just been diagnosed with Dyslexia. We are considering a couple of schools recommended to us for him. We would also like to find a school suitable for our 10 year old daughter starting September 2010, one that would, hopefully be suitable for our son in future years when and if he is able to go "mainstream". I guess what we are looking for is a school that accommodates for students with dyslexia in their high school years (or before).
