Format: Paperback
Uniquely Gifted is a collection of over 40 articles by parents, teachers, and twice exceptional children themselves. There is something for everyone dealing with twice exceptional kids, from gifted / ADHD, to gifted / Aspergers syndrome, to gifted / dyslexic, and many, many more combinations of giftedness and ... after reading this book, I can't even call them disabilities. Different abilities, that's better.

These are good stories of success, in many different forms: accomodations in public school, private or special school, or home schooling. Sometimes, it's a combination of these different environments that serves a twice exceptional child best. So many different stories, each with a unique solution emphasizing the child's giftedness in addition to any other part of the child, so that these kids can grow up to be their best.

This is a book that should be read by guidance counselors, psychologists, and parents of twice exceptional children.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who has a twice exceptional child simply must buy this book. They are such an perplexing combinations: unusual and confusing, brilliant and constrained, with an unfortunate dose of 'needing what there ain't'. Simply helping them navigate childhood in one healthy piece is a challenge of mammoth proportions; seeing them reach their real potential can seem a distant dream. However, this book has just given us both a path and the guide book.
I have finally found the closest thing to an instruction manual for raising my son, and I needed it more desperately than I could ever say. Ms. Kay has done something of real significance. Many people write books - some are more helpful than others. She, however, has done something more momentous for parents like me. There are many things in that one book - something to clutch in the dark times of self-doubt - something to give to others showing glimmers of willingness to understand - a reference library for calm moments of learning - a "been there done that, survived it too" hug for the times when we just can't go another step. So much more.
The book doesn't preach, or prescribe - it gives options that have worked for others, insights that only come from years of desperate struggle, and hope that springs cautiously from the knowledge that others have been here, and survived.
If you have (or work with) a 2E child, or a "he's so clever, if he would just... " child, or a "I just don't know what we're going to do to help her" child, then order it now.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those books that every educator and child psychologist MUST have. I am impressed by how well Kiesa has collected and edited this selection of essays and writings by both parents and professionals. If you have a twice special child, you need this book - as does every school in the country.
