The Gifted and Talented: A \”Special\” Special Need.

The Gifted and Talented: A \”Special\” Special Need

\”… \’gifted students are truly our forgotten children. Neglected in our schools and ignored by our policymakers, they spend their days dozing through classes in which they aren\’t learning\’ \” (Heward, 2009, p. 501). Many families and educators believe that children who are gifted and talented are not being adequately identified and served in many public schools today. There are no broad federal mandates, backed by government funding, that require every state to provide students identified as gifted and talented with services for their unique needs. There are few efforts to identify and meet the needs of children who possibly fall under one of the categories you have already studied and who are also gifted and talented.

Review Chapter 13 on pages 492509 in your course textfor definitions of giftedness and talent and background information on the challenges for students and schools. Also review the article \”Federal Law Drains Resources for the Gifted,\” which provides valuable insights as to the attitudes prevalent in education today.

Consider the following:

What you have learned about children who are gifted and talented

What are the special needs of young children who are gifted and talented? What are the special needs of older children?

What are arguments for doing more to support children who are gifted and talented?

What are arguments against using public money for gifted programs?

What are the risks for these children when a school program does not meet their needs?
