4.4.5 A process oriented talent development model for guiding gifted children

Self-knowledge is fundamental in the complex and ongoing process of talent development, which is influenced by many factors (personal characteristics and environmental factors). It is important and challenging for gifted children to discover how it is possible to invest in their own development in a way that fits them, given the available opportunities in their specific context. A process oriented model of talent development has been developed as a means to improve communication and mutual understanding, and to gain deeper understanding of supportive and hindering factors, which can be used to guide and counsel gifted children.
