Recognizing the imperative of catering to gifted and talented children in the UAE, the Ministry of Education underscores the necessity to provide tailored educational approaches. These exceptional learners possess distinct cognitive abilities that necessitate specialized support. By identifying these students early on and offering customized educational experiences, educators ensure their holistic growth intellectually, emotionally, and socially. Neglecting their unique requirements could lead to underutilization of potential and hindered personal development. The Ministry’s commitment to empowering teachers with the essential knowledge and tools to cater to these diverse learning needs highlights the nation’s dedication to nurturing a generation capable of propelling the UAE towards continued global excellence.
