This is quite simply a must-read for practitioners in education who deal with gifted and talented students. In one comprehensive resource, this superb handbook brings together leading experts from the fields of psychology and education, combining theory and applied empirical research on such crucial topics as conceptualization, types of intelligence, developmental considerations, and ethical and legal concerns. Particular attention is given to social and family contexts, and evidence-based strategies and interventions offer solid guidelines on assessment, curriculum design, and encouraging and nurturing talent – from preschool through adolescence. At the moment, if you mention "special needs children", most people think of students struggling to overcome learning and physical disabilities as well as problem behaviors. But there is a hidden population of special needs children – the gifted and talented – and their teachers, parents, and other professionals are often not well equipped to respond to their unique academic and developmental needs. This book will help them do so.
