Parents of young children often wonder whether their child is showing exceptional abilities in a certain domain, and if so, how much help the child needs in developing these abilities. This practical book is designed to help parents and educators in recognizing and cultivating their children's talents from preschool through the elementary years. An introductory chapter provides an overview of what researchers know about early talent and its development in various contexts. Subsequent chapters, written by experts in music, language arts, mathematics, the visual arts, science and athletics examine early talent in each domain. Chapter authors offer advice on finding instructors, using school and community resources and further reading in each domain. The book, written for a general audience, is recommended for both parents and educators, particularly those whose students may have special talents in non-academic areas. Special pricing from Prufrock Press is available when the book is purchased through Center for Talent Development.
