Gifted children are reported to make up only 6% of a public school’s population, thus going vastly overlooked. This presentation will define the term GATE and discuss some the common characteristics found in gifted children of all backgrounds, as well as impart strategies for identifying, teaching and advocating for our GATE population in the public school system.
