Administrator and Counselor Training: Nature and Needs and Program Options for Gifted Students

The Texas GT State Plan requires administrators and counselors who have authority for program decisions to have a minimum of six hours of professional development that includes nature and needs of gifted/talented students and program options for gifted/talented students. (19 TAC §89.2(4))

In this workshop, we will explore the nature and needs of gifted students, learn about various G/T definitions, traits, aptitudes, and behaviors used when discussing GT students and their instructional and affective needs, and discuss options available for GT programs. We will also cover the state requirements and various procedures and instruments used for identifying GT students.

Participants will meet at the ESC for the morning and will have follow-up work to complete on campus or in district.
