Members of GLD Australia include parents, educators and other professionals dedicated to promoting awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by GLD children, thereby assisting them to benefit from specialised identification and intervention or treatment as early as possible. Members participate in the community as individuals and support one another without commercial interest.

Participants in GLD Australia represent a very diverse group – from those whose child or student has been formally identified as intellectually gifted and/or as having a disability, to these who simply have a ‘feeling’ that the child is not achieving academically as well as they could or should.

You may have seen such individuals referred to internationally as ‘2e’ (twice-exceptional) or ‘DME’ (dual or multiple exceptionality).
