This paper takes a look at the phenomenon of gifted children. The paper includes definitions of "gifted" and the different types of gifted children, as well as a discussion of the problems such children face, the inadequacy of schools to deal with such children, and what parents of such children can do.
From the Paper:"Although these outstanding abilities may sound as if they are desirable and appreciated assets, many parents of gifted students report that their children's abilities are as much a handicap as those experienced by learning disabled or mentally challenged students. They see the problems the students experience in both academic and social environments and are faced with tough challenges and questions: How can I help my child integrate into society? Is our school fully capable of developing his/her talents? Do their talents in some way fit into society? How do I encourage my child to achieve their intellectual potential? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF I JUST DID NOTHING?"
