The Gifted Learner: How to Help



The Gifted Learner: How to Help is a complete introduction into how to nurture high ability students. The book reveals how to unlock the potential of a gifted learner, so that their gift becomes a talent that is celebrated, enriching their life, and the lives of others. Gifted children are often overlooked in education, as they are perceived to be high achieving. However, not all, have a consistent high ability, or achieve in all subjects. Some gifted learners can also have a learning difficulty and many are emotionally immature and need
to be nurtured, holistically, at cognitive and emotional levels. This book shows how. The book includes chapters on curiosity, creativity, boredom and perfectionism. There are nineteen case studies of individual learners, their parents and teachers, which provide real and authentic insights into recognising, understanding and supporting the Gifted Learner.
