It is generally accepted today, and also UK government policy, that educational authorities must make provision for meeting the needs of gifted children. But how should they go about it? There is so much lack of agreement about what is the best strategy, about how to identify the gifted youngsters and even about what the concept of giftedness means. The author is a leading expert, who holds a doctorate from Manchester University in this subject and is a former Research Director of the Mensa Foundation for Gifted Children. In plain English, in a balanced way and in a logical order, he covers everything a teacher, or a parent needs to know to meet the challenge of educating a gifted child.
