About ABC Halton Chapter
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.
The ABC Ontario Halton Chapter is supported by many volunteers and parents of gifted children in the Halton area (Oakville, Milton, Burlington, Halton Hills (Georgetown, Acton).
About ABC Ontario
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 and gifted 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.
Important notice for Parents
It has come to our attention that in some cases, children who are identified as gifted are not being granted access to the gifted self contained classes in the Halton District School Board. If this has happened to you, or to a family that you know, please contact Sherry Foster, our ABC Halton representative on the HDSB Special Education Advisory Committee. (email@example.com)
