About the institution

The Nation­al Asso­ci­a­tion for the Study and Inter­ven­tion in Gift­ed­ness (ANEIS) was cre­at­ed in Decem­ber 1998 at the ini­tia­tive of teach­ers, psy­chol­o­gists and stu­dents. Pro­gres­sive­ly, it devel­ops and pro­vides sup­port to chil­dren and young peo­ple with over gift­ed char­ac­ter­is­tics and to their fam­i­lies, in the mul­ti­ple areas of human capac­i­ty and activ­i­ty — intel­lec­tu­al, motor, aca­d­e­m­ic, social, artis­tic, mechan­i­cal and emo­tion­al — with a view to inte­gral devel­op­ment, improve­ment of the qual­i­ty of life and social and school inclusion.

The scope and needs felt by the exist­ing 9 del­e­ga­tions, fore­sees the adhe­sion of new del­e­ga­tions in the nation­al ter­ri­to­ry, as well as, the grow­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of cas­es of over­do­ing in schools, by psy­chol­o­gy pro­fes­sion­als and/or even by those in charge of education.
