9780910707701: Losing Our Minds: Gifted Children Left Behind

Highly and profoundly gifted children have typical behaviors in early childhood!

Written for parents and teachers who work with gifted children, this book describes behaviors of children who are measured at the highest ranges of intelligence. The data indicate many more of these children than previously thought, and show that current tests usually underestimate their abilities.

Fascinating vignettes from 50 different families and their highly intelligent children are included, and the children are classified into five Levels of intelligence. Testing, test scores, and interpretations of scores are explained in a new, eye-opening way. Parents and teachers will be able to compare a child’s behaviors and developmental milestones to those of children in the five Levels chapters, and thus estimate their child’s intellectual level and the implications for educational planning. Features include: · Information about testing and ceiling effects · Early developmental milestones · Family concerns · Choosing a school · Five Levels of gifted · Educational concerns · Instructional strategies
