About The Book
In my estimation Giftedness 101 ranks high among authoritative texts devoted to this particular population of children. It not only offers thorough experience and knowledge-based insights to those who are already or are contemplating serving the social emotional needs of these children in the future, but also those who profess to educate future teachers, those who would venture out into classrooms charged with the teaching and many others besides. It should be required reading for politicians — especially those who shape educational policy. — Gifted and Talented International
Linda Silverman is an articulate, insightful, authoritative, and extremely gifted international expert in the assessment of giftedness…[She] has created a gem with Giftedness 101. The fields of psychology and education should welcome this vibrant book with open arms.

This is a really terrific book! I’m really impressed at how much information has been packed into it, how accessible it is (without talking down to the audience), and how well the author has parsed the many key issues in the world of giftedness. Parents and mental health professionals with find this book incredibly useful. I look forward to sharing it far and wide. I think it is a book that was badly needed and will really fill a niche.

What is giftedness? Is it the potential for success or is it the experience of being an outsider? This book addresses the unique psychological needs of gifted children, which are often manifested as feeling different, and examines special issues such as gifted children with learning disabilities, gender considerations, implications of socio-economic status, and more.
Giftedness 101 dispels common myths about giftedness and challenges the view that eminence is the true signifier of giftedness.

The book defines giftedness as a psychological reality with powerful ramifications throughout the lifespan.
