Abstract

This article first surveys the various causal factors involved in the emergence of academic talent as they appear in the authors Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent (DMGT). The models six components are describe, as well as some interactions between them. The author then pinpoints the subcomponent enrichment provisions within the component environmental catalysts as the weakest causal contributor to talent emergence on average, explaining how that choice was made. Various impacts of that weakest link status are discussed, leading to a plea for major advocacy programs as the only effective way to ensure a much larger implementation of enrichment provisions in schools.

Key Words: Giftedness, talent, talent development, intrapersonal catalysts, environment, enrichment provisions, advocacy.
