Mentiqa covers a concept of views on and experiences with education of highly gifted pupils in Denmark. It was founded by Pernille Buch-Rømer in the belief that schooling with like-minded children makes it possible for the highly gifted pupil to develop adequate social skills. Thus the main point of Mentiqa is to care for the well-being of its pupils, which is made possible through the acceptance of the highly gifted pupil's special behaviour and way of thinking. This means that concepts such as inclusiveness and differentiated teaching are defined through a fundamental idea that treating children equally is treating them differently.
