Online Glossary



Checklists may be used for observational purposes in a diagnostic context. They occasionally include examples of traits and patterns of behavior in gifted children but only ever function here as ways of narrowing the focus of observation rather than as instruments for providing direct evidence of giftedness, which would require an educational or psychological assessment of a child.

The authors Nicole Miceli and Anne-Kathrin Stiller have developed this glossary together with the Fachportal Team. The glossary was translated by Daniel Shatwell and edited by Lisa Trierweiler.
