Exploring some of the myths and dilemmas surrounding giftedness, the author focuses on strategies in which carers are encouraged to match different learning styles with different teaching approaches. There is also helpful guidance on managing behaviour and working with families.
The issues are addressed in a clear and readable style, always with short examples and a practical focus.
Gifted and Talented Children in the Early Years
"As with all QEd Publications, the book provides simple and practical advice. It shows how to work successfully with other professionals and parents. A mention of other strategies which might be useful could also have been included (e.g. brain-based learning and accelerated learning strategy) but additional information is provided to enable the interested reader to further their knowledge."
"I found much in this short book of use. The tables constructed by the author to support the identification of different intelligences could support teaching and learning by indicating strategies and processes that may lead to enhanced success for all.
