Highly Gifted Children

A guide for parents

Authoritative answers to the questions most frequently asked about exceptionally gifted children.

Exceptionally gifted children are in fact entirely normal, neither freaks nor geniuses way off the Richter scale. They merely happen to be extremely intelligent which means their parents and teachers have to adapt their behaviour accordingly. In this well researched and practical guide the author identifies the distinguishing features of a highly gifted child, how to recognize one and which assessment tests to apply. She also examines the extent to which highly gifted children are different from others, and shows the best ways to deal with them and foster their development.
