Being gifted is a great asset. It means being endowed with immense abilities. But it also means being different, having a sense of vulnerability about which little is known...
It could almost be said that gifted children are in danger. They are emotional sponges who often ignore the insouciance of childhood, and their hyper-receptivity puts them in a state of heightened vigilance. For these reasons, gifted children are more often familiar with fear and anxiety. And yet, if parents and teachers understand the gifted child, he or she will blossom and make use of the great wealth of his or her personality and abilities. The goal of this practical manual is to guide parents and teachers in the discovery of gifted or exceptional children. Jean Siaud-Facchin is a clinical psychologist.
