Is there really such a thing as giftedness? Are programs for gifted children elitist and undemocratic? Giftedness 101 addresses this extremely controversial topic with the intention of dispelling the many myths surrounding the concept of giftedness and providing a clear, cohesive conception of the psychology and development of gifted children.

Seeking to reinvigorate the study of giftedness as a legitimate discipline of psychology, the book examines numerous viewpoints of giftedness that have scientific validity. It explores the many disparate opinions about giftedness throughout history, and discusses the meaning and characteristics of giftedness throughout the lifespan. Comprehensive methods of assessment are described along with parental and educational roles in developing the abilities of gifted children. The book addresses the unique psychological needs of gifted children, often manifested as ""feeling different,"" and examines special issues such as gifted children with learning disabilities, gender considerations, implications of socio-economic status, and more. Discussions of future trends and gifted education policy conclude the book.
