"Gifted and talented children" means those persons between the ages of five and twenty-one whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational programming needs. Children under five who are gifted may also be provided with early childhood special educational services. Gifted students may have disabilities (i.e. twice exceptional) and come from all socio-economic, ethnic and cultural populations. Gifted students are capable of high performance, exceptional production, or exceptional learning behavior by virtue of any or a combination of these areas of giftedness: • General or specific intellectual ability • Specific academic aptitude • Creative or productive thinking •Leadership abilities •Visual arts, performing arts, musical or psychomotor abilities.
