Gifted and Talented
Learners identified as gifted/ talented will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment. High school graduates who have participated in services for gifted/talented students will have produced products and performances of professional quality as part of their program services.
All campuses in Humble ISD provide screening, identification, and services for Gifted and Talented students. In order for a student to be identified as Gifted and Talented (GT) in Humble ISD, data from several quantitative and qualitative criteria are collected over a four-week period to identify students who exhibit potential and/or perform at levels significantly beyond the norm in areas of superior cognitive ability and/or specific academic achievement.

Myths about Gifted Students
These and other myths prevent our country from appropriately educating millions of advanced students. NAGC compiled a list of the most prevalent myths in gifted education with evidence rebutting each of them. This list was developed from a longer list of myths explored in a special of Gifted Child Quarterly (GCQ) in the Fall of 2009. NAGC Members can read the full issue of GCQ via the SAGE website
Helping Your Gifted Child Succeed!
Each child has strengths in certain areas, whether in math; language arts; physical, natural, and social sciences; music; visual and performing arts; leadership; athletics; philanthropy; or some other field. To help bright children discover what they do best, we need to help them explore their interests and abilities.
¡Ayude a su hijo dotado a tener éxito!
Cada niño tiene capacidades en ciertas áreas, ya sea en las matemáticas, lengua y literatura, ciencias formales, naturales y sociales, música, artes visuales y escénicas, liderazgo, atletismo, filantropía o algún otro campo. Para ayudar a los niños dotados a descubrir sus talentos excepcionales, hay que explorar sus intereses y habilidades.
Supporting Your Gifted Child During COVID-19
As COVID-19 forces us to face new norms like social distancing, remote learning, and shelter-inplace orders, gifted children may exhibit increased anxiety, sadness, intense feelings, and out-of-theordinary behavior.
Cómo apoyar a tu hijo/a con altas capacidades durante el COVID-19
El COVID-19 nos obliga a adaptarnos a nuevas normas como el distanciamiento social, la educación a distancia y el encierro. Ante esto, los/as niños/as y adolescentes superdotados pueden experimentar un aumento de ansiedad, tristeza, emociones intensas y comportamientos fuera de lo común.
