Challenging Highly Gifted Learners

Highly gifted students have unique needs, and in-class accommodations for the gifted rarely are adequate for those students.  The higher the level of giftedness, the more help that is needed to turn a risky school experience into a successful one.  Highly gifted students need a successful patchwork of options that allows them to stretch, pushes them to be better, develop their talents, and maintains their motivation to learn.  Challenging Highly Gifted Learners focuses on many of the issues involved in assessing and challenging highly gifted learners.  Bobbie Gilman provides a thorough discussion of the ceiling problems encountered on common assessments, as well as strategies for teachers and parents in planning appropriate education.  Successful accommodations for the highly gifted normalize their school experiences and allow them to enjoy the basic benefits of education, too.

Academic Advocacy

Out of Print - We will post an announcment when an updated version is available!

This completely updated, definitive manual on gifted advocacy guides parents and teachers from documenting a child’s abilities to providing reasonable educational options year by year. The necessity for daily accommodations in regular instruction (not just enrichment pull-outs) is emphasized by the children themselves—in case studies and their own accounts.
