Professor Gifted, Creative and TalentedEducational Studies

– Profile

Using the psychological and educational research foundation underscoring the social and emotional aspects of gifted and talented individuals, my inquiry focuses on this population’s affective development and psychological uniqueness. Of particular interest are appropriate identification processes and accommodations for children and adolescents who have the potential for gifted behavior but who are not easily identified and seldom served educationally.
