Riam Shaer

In addition, 60 parents and 60 teachers completed different questionnaires to meet the quantitative demands of the study.  Data was collected and analyzed from both instruments; questionnaires and interviews revealed that attention to the gifted students deteriorate and almost vanish when parents and educators do not realize the careless attitude directed to this group, do not recognize the essential needs this group requires, and do not work on putting stepping stones towards enhancement.
