Have special needs
Most of the them are underachivers (50% according to research)
Get cornered in the society
They risk alienation and grow to become antisocial
And they are a Nation’s WEALTH!!!!!!!!!!?
“I heard about plans to establish a kindergarten
for gifted children and take this opportunity to
strongly support this promising endeavour, which
not only gives necessary developmental input to
the individual children, but is a big step forward to
a gifted education, dealing with differentiation in
heterogeneity, from which finally all children and
lastly the society will get profit….
RECOMMENDATION 1248 (1994) of the
Council of Europe, Parliamentary Assembly states:
“Gifted children should be able to benefit from appropriate educational conditions that would allow them to develop fully their abilities, for their own benefit and for the benefit of society as a whole. No country can indeed afford to waste talents and it would be a waste of human resources not to identify in good time any intellectual or other potentialities. Adequate tools are needed for this purpose”
”The ordinary school system should be made flexible enough to enable the needs of high performers or talented students to be met”
Council of Europe, Reply from the Committee of Ministers
In 2003, the Committee of Ministers stated in two official replies (September and December) that:
Gifted children form a category of persons with special needs; they face “certain specific problems in the regular education system for ordinary children” and because of that, they require proper provision within a different education system. If proper care is not taken, on one hand, “the high potential of these children for creativity is lost, and on the other hand, there is the risk of alienation, drop-out and antisocial behaviour”.
Salamanca World Conference on Special Needs Education, 1994:
“… Schools should accommodate all children regardless of their physical, intellectual, social, emotional, linguistic or other conditions. This should include disabled and gifted children, street and working children, children from remote or nomadic populations, children from linguistic, ethnic or cultural minorities and children from other disadvantaged or marginalised areas or groups.”
Dakar World Education Forum, 2000:
“... Education systems must be inclusive, actively seeking out children who are not enrolled, and responding flexibly to the circumstances and needs of all learners...”
Art.3 - According to the Human Rights Charter, Lisbon case, the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child, Recommendation 1248/1994 of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, students with special needs, among whom gifted students can be mentioned, shall be provided with an adequate educational environment which allows them to fully exploit their potential for their own, as well as for the society’s benefit.
Art.4 - In accordance with the regulations of Law of Education no.84/1995 and Government Emergency Ordinance no. 36/1997, this law is intended to promote and guarantee the right to differentiated education, setting a legal and technical-logistic framework for professional elites in all fields, through:
a) Differentiated education as a set of formal, non-formal and informal educational programs adapted for the development of the gifted students population segment characterized by special needs;
b) Education of gifted and talented students in public or private specialized centers through specialized classes, week-end schools, training camps, summers schools, distance education programs, and other methods;
c) The differentiated curriculum as method of adapting the objectives, contents, educational and teaching strategies, study, evaluation, special capabilities, to the ability capacity, the level of cognitive, emotional and motric capacities, to the learning style and rhythm of the gifted students;
d) Public-private partnerships between public institutions and organizations with competence in the field of gifted and talented students’ education.

Project writing and implementation:
Who is involved in project development:
EDUGATE is our partner in recruting and supplying the project with human resources.
Gifted Education is proved to have high results with all categories of individuals - research proves that every child when 3 years old is gifted on all areas of attention, concetration, creativity, intelligence, motivation, capacity to learn, to have humor and the sense of right
Research also shows that intelligence and creativity forms 95-98% at early ages (10 to 12 years old)
Quality Day Care, Early, Is Tied to Achievements as an Adult
Early quality education can develop the intelligence and creativity of children: The Abecedarian project in the US proves this result (1999). More evidence: Jeff Bezos – Amazon, Larry Page – Google, Sergey Brin – Googlecredit Montessori education for their succes (Going to a Montessori school is where they learned to be self-directed and self-starters. They said that Montessori education allowed them to learn to think for themselves and gave them freedom to pursue their own interests)
