Talent Search

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


For school psychologists, who are often responsible for supporting school gifted and talented programs, Talent Search also provides a direct connection to resources and supplementary programs designed for advanced and gifted students, which will help plan course sequences and talent development opportunities through elementary, middle, and high school. It is important to note that, in addition to students and families receiving access to programs and services, the school and the contact-typically the school psychologist or gifted program coordinator who helps coordinate Talent Search participation-also receive all of the diagnostic and program-related information. Schools use a variety of tests for many different purposes, but not all tests work well for all cohorts of students, as this chapter on Talent Search explains. Talent Search can provide several benefits to school psychologists, particularly as they engage in the identification of and academic planning for gifted students.
