Re-Forming Gifted Education

How Parents and Teachers Can Match the Program to the Child




Karen B. Rogers, Ph.D.

*Supplemental material: Gifted Education Planner(s), also available on our website.


A solid education plan is like a puzzle, but this book can help you put all of the pieces together for your gifted child. A one-size-fits-all approach to education often doesn’t work, particularly with gifted children, who differ greatly in both ability levels and learning styles. Schools seldom have all of the information or resources they need to provide appropriate educational programs for children who are gifted, and parents often need to negotiate for an education plan—even if the child is already in a gifted program, since many of these programs fall short. Dr. Rogers guides parents through the process of making that happen and describes several recommended models for acceleration and enrichment. She also explains educational options and their benefits for different types of children so that you can match the right program to your child.

Because Dr. Rogers recommends that parents gather as much information as possible about their gifted child before going to the school to request services, she also has created the Gifted Education Planner, which uses questionnaires taken directly from this book. The Planner makes it easy for parents to help determine their child’s strengths, weaker areas, interests, and preferred learning styles. Armed with this information, parents can then meet with school staff to request and secure an appropriate educational plan for their child.
