It also has common-sense advice.
This book is like a breath of fresh air. It shows what "Gifted-LD" is REALLY like, with both compassion as well as respect. It gives permission to parents to address their child's NEEDS rather than go with what the "system" says.
I LOVE the unique perspectives presented, and I learned new USEFUL terminology that would have been so helpful in explaining to people why a highly gifted child, let alone one with an LD, might have unique educational needs.
I could not put this book down.
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.
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.
