Providing Programs for Preschool Gifted Children on a Statewide Basis.
Louisiana's statewide provisions for education of gifted and talented preschoolers are reviewed, and difficulties encountered in serving 300 gifted young children are addressed. Among the administrative burdens cited are narrow identification criteria and the combination of limited financial and personnel resources resulting in the availability of only several program prototypes. Nine suggestions are offered to other states attempting to institutionalize statewide programing for gifted preschoolers, including design of a comprehensive plan for gifted education, establishment of an effective support group, pilot testing of a variety of delivery systems, provision of adequate teacher training, involvement of principals and school support personnel, and design of a system to track children through gifted programs.
