Gifted Children: A Guide for Parents and Professionals

Winner of NAGC's 2007 award: "Supporting Gifts and Talents - Most Important Book"

Gifted Children Cover Whether you want to find out more about our book, or you have read the book and are looking for further information and support, we hope that you will find this website useful.

Gifted Children is a lively and informative exploration of the gifted mind and the social and emotional needs of gifted children and their families. The authors provide insight into what is 'normal' for gifted children and offer pointers for parents on how to support them at home, in family interactions, and at school. They identify self-acceptance and communication with others as key skills for gifted children, whose exceptional abilities in fields ranging from music and maths to linguistics and philosophy are sometimes complicated by poor social skills, dyslexia or other difficulties.

This excellent book, written by counsellors who are also parents with first-hand knowledge of living and working with gifted children, is an accessible guide full of constructive advice and encouragement for other parents. It skilfully combines practical information, such as useful contact details, with opportunities for reflection.

Each of the authors counselled gifted children and their families for the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC), before its Counselling Service closed in 2005. They all have first-hand experience either of being gifted children themselves or of being parents or grandparents of gifted children.
