Different Minds: Gifted Children with AD/HD, Asperger Syndrome, and Other Learning Deficits
This book describes the different levels and kinds of giftedness providing at the same time an insight into the challenges and benefits specific to this group of gifted children with attention difficulties, and other learning deficits. Lovecky explains why certain children are gifted and how giftedness is manifested and guides professionals through methods of diagnosis. The author also advises on how best to nurture individual needs, positive behavior, and relationships at home and at school.
You will learn new concepts and effects of `uneven’ development on children from different case studies, realize what measures are inadequate, and be able to understand and provide better help to gifted children with difficulties.
