2.1.3 Cancelled

Lebanon is a small country in the Middle East with high literacy level among children. In the 1997 curriculum reform, special education was introduced to the curriculum, which catered to the needs of children with learning difficulties and disabilities. The needs of gifted children were not mentioned. Although there have been some attempts, officially, there are no well-rounded programs catering to the gifted population. As a community, LWIS-CIS understands the vital role educators play in developing critical thinking in future citizens and catering to gifted learners. The development of Gifted and Talented Clubs is the result of this knowledge.
