Guidance Services for Gifted Disadvantaged Children and Youth.
Cooke, Gwendolyn J.
The development of strong guidance programs that assure a fuller development of the talents of gifted disadvantaged children and youth is held to be one of the best investments America can make at this point in time. Several strategies for instituting solid programs of guidance and counseling services reflecting goals such as remediation, prevention, and counselee - centered promotion are described. The importance for teachers, counselors, and students to set attitudinal and aspirational goals that take into account the affective life of the child is stressed. Parental participation in the education of their children, be they disadvantaged or advantaged, is considered to be an essential element in any school program from both an empirical and theoretical framework. Various existing enrichment programs for gifted and talented disadvantaged students, along with resources such as a list of materials providing financial assistance information, are presented. (AM)
