Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Using the metaphor of masks, this text explores the many ways in which giftedness (intellectual potential) has been overlooked because of an individual's cultural group, handicap, or challenging condition. It is beneficial to teachers, administrators, undergraduate students, counselors, parents, and those interested in multicultural perspectives and/or special education. This book is unique because the emphasis on diversity is echoed in the international perspective through the collaboration of contributors from the United States, Australia and Ukraine. Readers are presented with practical suggestions to help "lift the masks" and provide a more appropriate education to develop the intellectual strengths of these children.
