Book Title: Stand Up for Your Gifted Child: How to Make the Most of Kids' Strengths at School and at Home
Publisher: Free Spirit Pub
Author: Joan Franklin, M.A. Smutny
What does it mean when your child seems "average" at school but brilliant at home? What if your son has a talent–and a learning difference that hides it? You know that your daughter has extraordinary potential in math, but her teacher ignores it. What can you do?
If you think your gifted child isn't getting the education he or she needs, this book is for you. It helps you recognize your child's gifts, understand his or her problems at school, find out your district's policy on gifted education, explore various options (pull-out programs, acceleration, grade skipping, clustering, etc.), communicate effictively with the school and district, and provide enrichment at home.
Practical advice guides you toward workable solutions. Real-life examples show how any parent, in any situation, can become a powerful advocate for his or her child. Resource point the way toward more information and support.
