Exceptionally Gifted Children

£34.99

Product description

This book is in good condition, and exhibits very faint wear on the front and rear covers. The spine is undamaged, as is the binding. Pages 17 and 145 have been folded at the top right corner, presumably for reference purposes from a previous owner.

Exceptionally Gifted Children is unique. The first edition of this book, published in 1993, introduced fifteen remarkable children, some of the most gifted young people ever studied, and traced their path through school, exploring their academic achievements (and in some cases enforced underachievement), their emotional development, their social relationships and their family relationships and upbringing. This new edition reviews these early years but also follows the young people over the subsequent ten years into adulthood.

No previous study has traced so closely and so sensitively the intellectual, social and emotional development of highly gifted young people. This twenty year study reveals the ongoing negative academic and social effects of prolonged underachievement and social isolation imposed on gifted children by inappropriate curriculum and class placement and shows clearly the long lasting benefits of thoughtfully planned individual educational programs. The young adults of this study speak out and show how what happened in school has influenced and still influences many aspects of their lives. Miraca Gross provides a clear, practical blueprint for teachers and parents who recognise the special learning needs of gifted children and seek to respond effectively.
