Developing Gifted Education Circular and Resources

  1. Gifted education refers to any modification of the curriculum in order to meet the needs of gifted children. In handling a gifted child, your goals should be:
  • To keep the child engaged and challenged. Gifted children often become bored in regular classrooms because they learn rapidly – many gifted children we’ve met have already read the textbook before the academic year begins! You need to find other ways to these children busy – or end up with a child who is chronically bored and possibly disruptive, underachieving, or frequently absent.
