CTY Ireland was established at Dublin City University in 1992 to meet the needs of high ability students aged 6 to 17 years from Ireland and abroad.

Since the first summer programme in 1993 over 35,000 students have attended or participated in programmes run by CTY Ireland.

CTYI Young Students Assessments

Due to Covid-19 we are no longer accepting assessment applications. We hope to get assessments back up and running in the next couple of months but for now we ask for your patience. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive the new new assessment schedule when it becomes available, please email: grace.kelley@dcu.ie

 

CTYI has launched our newest publication: Providing for the Special Needs of Students with Gifts and Talents. The book is now available for purchase from the CTYI offices. A copy can be purchased by phone at a cost of €15. 

In this collection of new essays, international experts in gifted education share their insight and experience, covering topical issues such as:

  • curriculum development
  • environmental influences that affect gifted children
  • the provision of inclusive services at the local and national level
  • networking for talented youth
  • in- and out-of-school programmes
  • working with very young advanced learners
  • facilitating gifted students from low-income backgrounds
  • supporting positive psychological growth and development
  • motivating gifted students

Drawing on decades of academic research and professional experience, Providing for the Special Needs of Students with Gifts and Talents is essential reading for parents, educators and anyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of children with great potential.
