Proposed project is conceptually and methodologically linked to the post-doc GACR project, which postulated a hypothesis about the existence of suspectively significant socio-emotional problems of intellectually gifted children with a handicap, namely with the conduct and learning disabilities.Gifted children with disabilities form, according to competent resources, an extremely heterogeneous group of children, with respect to school and psychic problems, special needs and consequently with respect to diagnostical and interventional approaches towards them.
The goal of the presented project is to conduct the individual clinical assessment of cognitive abilities (profile) of a selected group, to compare the magnitude of the disparities between their strengths and weaknesses, to describe, analyse and specify possible significant differences in teachers and parental evaluations of child s abilities and handicaps and consequently, to explain possible negative interference of these judgements with full development of child s abilities. Finally, the aim is to formulate the basic rules and principles (to compile a practical tool), to be used for identification and formulating screening strategies for early detection of gifted, dyslectic children and formulate a fundamental criteria for the establishment of a new remedial program for this specific group of children.
