It is impossible to serve the needs of gifted children without first identifying them. Unfortunately, many students aren’t identified until too late in their educational journey. In this 1-hour course, Debra Troxclair, Ph.D. defines what giftedness actually is and presents the reasons why it is important to identify gifted students as early as possible.
In this course you will learn:
- Different types of gifted students
- Traits of giftedness that are often mistaken for misbehavior
- How to identify young children with advanced abilities
