• Gifted and Talented

    What are "Gifted and Talented Children"? Those persons between the ages of four and 21 whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs. Gifted students include gifted students with disabilities (i.e. twice-exceptional) and students with exceptional abilities or potential from all socioeconomic and ethnic, cultural populations. Gifted and talented students are capable of high performance, exceptional production, or exceptional learning behavior by virtue of any or a combination of these areas:

    • General or specific intellectual abilities
    • Specific academic aptitude
    • Visual arts, performing arts, musical, or psychomotor abilities
    • Creative or productive thinking
    • Leadership abilities

    From the Colorado Department of Education, Office of Gifted and Talented Education:www.cde.state.co.us/gt

    This definition serves as the basis for the implementation of all other program plan elements.
