Summary Mention "special needs children," and most people think of students struggling to overcome learning and physical disabilities as well as problem behaviors that interfere with achieving full academic potential. But there is a hidden population of special needs children??? the gifted and talented??? and their teachers, parents, and other professionals are often not well equipped to respond to their unique academic and developmental needs. In one comprehensive resource, the Handbook of Giftedness in Children brings together leading experts from the fields of psychology and education.
