As if that problem alone would not pose enough of a challenge, ADHD and similar conditions can present in gifted children.
This book presents a useful framework to distinguish gifted behaviour in unchallenging environments from actual mental disorders. A useful read for parents of talented and gifted children.
It isn't the alpha and omega of raising a gifted child though.
