Homework Help: CHILD DEVELOPMENT QUESTION

Posted by Merisa on Monday, November 20, 2006 at 8:41pm.

Because their exceptional talents or
intellects need to be stimulated and
challenged,what kind of children require
special attention within the context of
a normal early childhood education program?

Would it be gifted children or
physically disabled children?

I am thinking the correct answer would
be gifted children. Am I correct?

Gifted is correct.

Gifted and Talented. Physically disabled do not necessarily have exceptional talents or intellects.

The physically disabled can also be gifted. Many of them may posess exceptional talents or intellects. A child with a learning disability may also be gifted. They may have superior intelligence or outstanding artistic or mechanical talents. The same is true of children with hearing impairments, cerebral palsy, or any other disability. Rarely do we search for giftedness among special populations though. That is because we fail to even recognize the strengths of the physically disabled, let alone the giftedness. Their potential may go unidentified because of cultural or educational biases.
