Abstract

The talented and gifted programs throughout the United States have become a vital part of curriculum instruction for many children. Unfortunately, minority children are underrepresented in the talented and gifted programs. The underrepresentation of minority children resulted in an examination of the current identification processes and the discovery of new procedures that would identify more minority children for participation in the talented and -gifted programs. · The literature review focused on the use of a multifaceted screening process and alternative forms of assessment for the identification and admittance of minority children for talented and gifted programs. As a result, options were addressed that would pursue a better representation. of minority children in the talented and gifted programs.
