In order to test four hypothesis which predicted that: (i) the Escala de Características de Leitura – a tool used for teachers’ nominations of reading giftedness and talent (G&T) – is unidimensional, (ii) showhigh positive item-total correlations, (iii) has high reliability and (iv) is positively correlated, but not strongly, with reading single words and text comprehension, elementary school students were assessed with this measure by their teachers (N = 19). The 528 students also had their performance in reading single words measured by the Teste de Desempenho Escolar one-to-one. The Cloze Test was applied in small groups of students and measured the text comprehension. The four hypothesis, albeit limited, have been corroborated. The limitations of the current study, the relevance of the identification of reading G&T and, consequently, the imperative to meet the special educational needs of these readers are also considered in this paper.
