The Rural Gifted: Influences and Challenges

Rural gifted services are as unique as each rural community.  Understanding what is rural and the nature of identification and services for rural gifted students is essential to meeting this unique population’s needs. This session explores the intersection of gifted characteristics and rural culture as well as the challenges of providing gifted services in rural settings. In addition, the strengths students of poverty, those who may be Twice Exceptional, and multicultural students bring to the school is explored for its impact on identification and services.
