The article focuses on developing the talents of gifted children. Based on research, the best way to develop a child's talent may refer to various indicators, such as higher achievement test score, higher measure of self-concept or more positive responses. In order for teachers to develop the talents of a gifted child, they must have a knowledge of these talents. If they cannot be manifested on standard measures, it can be shown through a portfolio. Once these are identified, the teacher needs to know what the child's learning styles are and in which multiple intelligences he or she has strengths and weaknesses.
