Comments

Intellectually gifted and academically talented students are able to learn material rapidly and understand concepts deeply. Keeping them challenged and learning to their capacity can require changes in their regular school programs.
Hochbegabte Kinder werden nur dann arrogant, wenn sie in ihrer Entwicklung sinnlos gebremst werden.
Nurturing the intellectual, social and emotional development of any child is a challenging opportunity. However, parents of gifted children face unique and often difficult child-rearing challenges. Gifted children may perform excep- tionally well or do very poorly in school.They may be average students. They may be cheerful and well-adju- sted or lonely and unhappy. They may be learning disabled. There are all kinds of gifted children.
