A gifted and talented student is identified as, “…having outstanding talent and performing, or showing the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with other students."
If a student has been formally identified as gifted and or talented, information and additional resources should be sought from your local school or school system by contacting the
Office of Gifted and Talented/Advanced Instruction in your jurisdiction. This page contains many links to additional information about giftedness and programming for the gifted.
The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) organized the
Giftedness Knows No Boundaries Campaign. National education organizations and individuals interested in promoting equity and excellence in our Nation's homes, schools, and communities can support the campaign by actively promoting and sharing key information about the nature and needs of gifted children amongst others in their networks. The Campaign begins with awareness building about children with gifts and talents and will grow into a movement to improve policies and practices that create supportive environments where these children can thrive.
www.GiftednessKnowsNoBoundaries.org often as NAGC will regularly update the site with new resources and information.
