Nature and Needs of Migrant Students who are Gifted
with Dr. Cecelia Boswell

This session addresses the characteristics of gifted learners who are identified as migrant students. Gifted students are found in all communities and in all socioeconomic circumstances. Children of migrant workers express their giftedness in ways different from their peers who do not migrate.  Participants will leave with an understanding of characteristics of the gifted and how to see these characteristics in their migrant students.
