Many able children are underachieving in schools because teachers and parents are failing to identify and therefore adequately provide for their special needs. This work aims to assist teachers in becoming more patient and observant in the classroom so that they can accurately define their objectives in providing for these children. It also aims to help teachers and parents discover the excitement, challenge and pleasure of teaching able children and helping them to achieve their considerable potential. This edition includes updates and additions in computer technology, new resources and an expanded bibliography.
