Stile, Steve; Hudson, Brenda
This paper lists practices recommended by the Council for Exceptional Children's Division for Early Childhood concerning work with infants and young children who are gifted, in early intervention and early childhood special education programs. An introductory section discusses the benefits of early intervention with gifted children and notes the increasing number of early childhood programs for children who are gifted. Categories of recommended practices in gifted education are identified and discussed, including: assessment, individualized education programs and individualized family service plans, service delivery model/environment, general curriculum/intervention strategies, communication interventions, motor interventions, cognitive interventions, adaptive behavior interventions, social-emotional interventions, transition, personnel competence, program evaluation, and family participation. Seventy-five recommended practices, divided into these categories, are then listed. (Contains 11 references.) (JDD)
