What is Giftedness?

Identification of Potential Giftedness

General consensus world-wide agrees that true giftedness occurs in about three percent of the population. Research supports the fact that gifted individuals exhibit high levels of functioning in

the following areas; 

  •     cognitive
  •     affective/social emotional
  •     physical/sensory
  •     intuitive

Characteristics of giftedness will vary, no one child will have all of these characteristics . Identification of potential giftedness must employ multiple criteria to fairly assess every child.
