Description - Gifted Children Grown Up by Joan Freeman

More than a quarter of a century ago, Joan Freeman began this study of 210 children, comparing the recognized gifted, the unrecognized gifted and their classmates. This book: describes what happened to them and their families as they grew up and coped with their different circumstances; looks at the problems they faced, often described in their own words; contains personal details from in-depth interviews in homes and schools all over Britain, which are at times startling and sometimes depressing; and lays to rest many myths about the development of gifted children. The book offers insights inot the special situations of the gifted and points out much needed changes in their care and education. It is not only important for their own fufilment and happiness, but for the future of society.
