The National Research Center for the Education of Gifted and Talented Youth conducts research for the purpose of carrying out activities described in Sec. 5464(b) of the statute including research on methods and techniques for identifying and teaching gifted and talented students and for using gifted and talented programs and methods to serve all students.
