Colorado is one of the few states that has legislated support for children who are gifted and talented. This law is the Exceptional Children's Educational Act (ECEA) and is the primary law with requirements for the implementation of specific elements and procedures for gifted education programs.

The Colorado Department of Education defines gifted students as students who are capable of high performance, exceptional production, or exceptional learning behavior by virtue of any or a combination of these areas of giftedness:

  • General or specific intellectual ability
  • Specific academic aptitude
  • Creative or productive thinking
  • Leadership abilities
  • Visual arts, performing arts, musical or psychomotor abilities

See the Colorado Department of Education's Gifted Education website for more information.
