The article focuses on serving the educational needs of exceptional minority children in the U.S. Being culturally different, exceptional minority children have educational needs which may be different from non-minority exceptional children. The relevant concerns include curriculum, instruction, testing, motivation and teacher sensitivity. Studies by Torrance have shown the presence of 18 creative positives of exceptional minority children which can help in pointing out their strengths and giftedness.
