Balanced research and practice
In the Netherlands, there are many regional and national collaborative alliances aimed at meeting the educational needs of gifted students. Despite this, a relatively large percentage of school dropouts are gifted. Schools for the gifted and talented have requested a practical tool for supporting the well-being of gifted youth.Studying relevant literature, we (SLO) framed well-being as a combination of biological, social, and psychological factors. We formulated definitions for three aspects of well-being, namely emotional, social, and physical well-being. Furthermore, we summarised the main conclusions of current research on giftedness and well-being.In deciding on our approach to support schools and experts in supporting gifted students, we conducted a field study into current practices. Additionally, we consulted with many experts and gifted students while developing our conversation tool.Does your heart go out for the well-being of gifted students?
