Identifying Under-served Gifted Populations
In this webinar, Dr. Leslie Hosey will discuss the over-identification of under-served populations as having educational disabilities (e.g. Specific Learning Disabilities, emotional impairments, etc.). What are the effects of this over-identification? How do typical diagnostic protocols confound appropriate referral to gifted programs?
This presentation will also examine the nature of giftedness, the inappropriate composition and goals of many pull-out gifted programs, and offer re-commendations for both identification and services to under-served gifted populations.
