Annette Heinbokel, PhD, Dipl. Paed., is a retired teacher. She was the driving force behind the founding of the German Association for Gifted Children (DGhK; 1978). While still teaching, enrichment was more important than acceleration, because that was what most of the parents and the children wanted. Her research, however, concerns mostly acceleration because from her experience - and research! - that it is a good option for children who lack challenge - if handled properly. She started a German website on the subject: www.netzwerk-akzeleration.de

From 1994-2006 she lectured on gifted education at the University of Osnabrück.

She is an honorary member of the DGhK, besides a member of the World Council for Gifted and Talentet Children (WCGTC; since 1977), ECHA (of course!) and the Arbeitskreis Begabungsforschung und Begabungsförderung (ABB). She has been the editor of ECHA News since 2004.
