Identifying and Serving Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Gifted Students revolutionizes the identification and education of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) gifted and talented students. Written with the educator, administrator, and program developer in mind, this book will positively transform the educational system for working with CLD student populations. Correlated with the updated NAGC standards, the book examines existing programmatic structures through the lens of over- and under-representation of CLD students in gifted programs. The book also features a formula for auditing current programs for CLD representation and an innovative model for identifying these students for gifted services. This comprehensive resource addresses all aspects of identifying, serving, assessing, and responding to the academic, intellectual, and socio-emotional needs of gifted culturally and linguistically diverse students.
