Gifted & Talented

Gifted and Talented Program
Gifted and talented refers to those persons whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishments are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs. Identification of GT. intelligence is viewed as a dynamic, developmental, and multidimensional entity. Identification is necessary to assure appropriate programming.
