Gifted and talented children and youth are those of high potential or ability whose learning characteristics and educational needs require qualitatively differentiated educational experiences and/or services.
Possession of these talents and gifts, or the potential for their development will be evidenced through an interaction of above average intellectual ability, task commitment and/or motivation, and creative ability.
