Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Since the early 1930s counselors have been aware of the need for guidance for gifted adolescents (Milgram, 1991). However, it has not been until the past three decades that ample literature has been written to assist counselors in working with gifted adolescents (Ziv, 1977). In 1972 the United States Office of Education defined gifted and talented adolescents as those identified by professionally qualified person who, by virtue of outstanding abilities, are capable of high performance. These are individuals who require differentiated educational programs and services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program in order to realize their contribution to self and society (Betts, 1985, p.9). The counseling of gifted adolescents is included within the area designated as "services."
