many of the visuals were hard to see/read. Unclear. I feel as a special eduction teacher, there was no really new information to add to what we have already known for a long time, so perhaps this course is not relevant for special educators.

Quality – some of the visuals were difficult to read and unclear. I am not sure if the information is any different to what I would find on the internet. It would be nice to get above and beyond what we, as special educators, already know.

Fantastic. At times, hard to know if the information was American or Australian.

Having recently returned to teaching in a preschool setting, I found the course very informative. It has informed me of the things I should be looking out for. Such as, the gifted child’s learning and understanding as well as the behaviours and attitudes, that may give me more insight to their individual needs. Information from the child and their family is invaluable as a tool for supporting the child.
