Home – WiseOnes Australia
The new Licensing website is at www.wiseonesgifted.net. That is for those interested in owning their own business, using our programs, to assist schools and parents to differentiate part of the child’s learning to cater for their extra speed, complexity and abstract ideas and for those who are gifted but may have a disability as well. We make it easy by providing curriculum and training. No retiring age. There is an article about the 6 types of giftedness and a big list of the curriculum units. You need to be a qualified , registered teacher. The western suburbs and Gippsland need one.
This website is for those schools and parents served by WiseOnes itself and these are where new curriculum units and special needs programs such as Master Speller, are trialed and research done to check the effectiveness of the programs.
Assessments for those aged 5 to 75 by Skype are also available here.
Video Conferenced learning for home schoolers and remote schools can be arranged
Mensa scholarships are available but under the terms of the Bull bequest where the money comes from one grandparent at least of the child must be born in Australia and have worked here. Apply directly to Mensa for a year’s scholarship Value $960.
mensa.org.au. There are 5 scholarships available for children in the WiseOnes program if your child qualifies. Application is formal.
If your school is served by an Education Consultant who is a Licencee of WiseOnes then they may have their own website or advertisement in the school. Licencees are independent education business people not franchisees of WiseOnes. They provide the WiseOnes curriculum units in schools under Licence. Contact details are on wiseonesgifted.net. They are north, east, bayside and ranges areas of Melbourne so schools in those areas can be provided with the program.
WiseOnes licenses Intellectual property e.g. curriculum units and training videos to appropriate teachers who would like to assist gifted children using our very successful programs. They approach schools in their area, state or country and use the materials to provide the service.

The AIMS are Academic, Intellectual, Moral and Social development of a child who is significantly different. That is 2 or more standard deviations, the same as those who are very slow learners who have funded help at school. These children are not funded. All entrants are assessed, Fees are about equal to or less than swimming lessons though the teachers are highly educated and gifted people themselves so they can understand the different ways of thinking that these children exhibit. We provide all references and teaching aids as well since we go far beyond primary level needs. As far as the children can go our teacher can go.
Each unit consists of 8 sessions of an hour out of class each week. We rotate times so they don’t miss the same class lesson every week. They have no difficulty catching up what they miss. Units are multidisciplinary and holistic and children can contribute what they already know. They are challenged to whatever their failure level is so there is no ceiling to the learning. There are only 8 per group. We tried 10 to make it a bit cheaper but with all of them different from each other and no ceiling we decided to retain the quality instead.
Topics range over Arts, Language, History, Environment, Science, Maths, Thinking. We encourage children to join in all areas and not to specialize at this young level. Also they need to learn to fail. This is hard for the gifted. They have to overcome perfectionism and learn time management and some need social skills. These are all part of the program, individualized for each student through the understanding, empathy and skills of the teacher.
They love sharing their oddball senses of humour too, so love coming to school on the WiseOnes day. It is so lovely for them to have companions who understand their jokes, their allusions, share knowledge and all learn together- faster, more complex, more abstract, more suited to them. Belonging is the most needed thing but the gifted are so different that this is a difficulty. There are few of them. ” Do I dumb down to fit in or maintain my integrity and be a loner? Do I be the class clown? How do I get of class- be annoying”? With the WiseOnes program this is not longer a question. You have 7 possible friends who have been facing the same question.
