About the Center


A primary research goal of The Hollingworth Center focuses on the talent development of young children from diverse backgrounds. The Center has contributed to the body of research concerning the identification and support of talent in young children from economically disadvantaged families. The Center's Director was the co-recipient of two Paper of the Year Awards from the National Association of Gifted Children for articles related to this topic. Other Center interests include differentiated curriculum design, the scientific and spatial thinking of young children, the development of novice preschool teachers in public school settings, and global understanding and leadership in young children.
