Talented children

In Talented Children our objective is to increase the understanding of how talent develops and what factors affect it from an early age. We research how cognitive abilities and non-intellectual abilities develop in talented children, and what roles family, school, peers and society play. We strive to contribute to the improvement in caring for talented children in the Czech Republic. We provide teachers, parents and the children themselves with practical information supported by research. We identify talent, develop diagnostic methods, and work on developing the children’s abilities and on providing social and emotional support. We educate teachers and psychologists in these areas and offer counselling to talented children, their parents and teachers.
