Counseling Gifted Students: School-Based Considerations and Strategies
Kennedy, Kelly; Farley, Jessica
International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, v10 n3 p361-367 Jan 2018
Gifted students are a heterogeneous group, inclusive of those of all cultures, backgrounds, interests, and achievements. Gifted students may not display any more or worse psychological, social, or developmental challenges than their peers, but they also are not immune from these challenges. Moreover, the nature of their giftedness may impact both how they experience a challenge and how a counselor might best support them. This article provides information regarding some developmental, emotional, and social challenges faced by gifted youth, as well as some suggestions for appropriate school-based counseling strategies.
