This brochure, in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole, is intended to help parents identify children who are gifted and may need an education that goes beyond what is provided in their classrooms. It focuses on eight characteristics typical of such children with examples of behaviors showing the characteristic. The characteristics are: (1) dedication; (2) expression; (3) friendship; (4) curiosity; (5) adaptability; (6) interest; (7) energy; and (8) elaboration. A student behavior observation form is attached on which parents can record student behaviors in each of these areas. (DB)
