formerly titled Empowering Gifted Minds: Educational Advocacy That Works

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.
Winner of the First Place Legacy Award—Parent/Family category--and Foreword Magazine Silver Award for Parenting
