*  Cognitive and affective characteristics of gifted and talented students
*  Identification of Gifted students
*  A range of practical identification procedures
*  Strategies which may support the Gifted students within a mainstream classroom

Gifted Awareness Week Australia was founded by the Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented (AAEGT) to raise awareness of the identification, support and learning needs of gifted children and to celebrate the dedication of individuals and educational bodies who are making a difference in the lives of gifted children and their families. Gifted Awareness Week (GAW) 2019 will be held from the 18th to 24th of March and is centred on the national theme Belonging.
