Parenting a Gifted Child
Parenting a Gifted Child
Learn how to parent a gifted child in just 50 minutes with this practical and concise book. Giftedness is much more than a high IQ: it is a range of specific features which all set gifted children apart from their peers and, in some cases, can lead to social isolation and difficulties at school. As a parent, you may be left worried about your child’s future, which is why it is so important to ensure that they receive adequate support throughout their schooling and beyond.
In this book, you will learn about the steps you can take to support a gifted child, from securing confirmation by a specialist to ensuring that the teaching they receive is tailored to their needs. It also features useful tips to identify gifted individuals and a discussion of some of the most common preconceptions surrounding giftedness, giving you everything you need to help your child reach their potential.
