`This is a book which is a must to be read by those teaching able children and of course parents with children who appear to show giftedness or a high level of talent′ - Dr L F Lowenstein, National Association for Gifted Children Newsletter

David A Sousa, author of the bestselling How the Brain Learns (2000) and How the Special Needs Brain Learns (2001) presents a new book dealing with gifted and talented students. How the Gifted Brain Learns assists the reader in turning research on the brain function of intellectually and artistically advanced students into practical classroom activities and strategies.

David A Sousa shows how the brain processes information and offers both simple and complex strategies that will help identify and challenge gifted students in the classroom. Building on the latest discoveries in neuroscience, learning and the nature of intelligence, this book examines why traditional talent-identification techniques are inadequate (and often inaccurate), and presents methods that will allow identification of giftedness and talent potential with greater accuracy than ever before.

This book will help answer such questions as:

- How are the brains of gifted students different?

- What kinds of strategies are particularly effective for students with particular gifts?

- What can be done to adequately challenge gifted students in our schools?

- What can we do to identify and help gifted students who are underachievers?

- How can we identify and help students who are both gifted and learning disabled?

Schools have a responsibility to provide for the needs of gifted and talented students--to challenge them so that they may reach their fullest potentials. Offering real strategies for real classrooms, How the Gifted Brain Learns is an indispensable tool for all educators--school administrators, teachers, staff developers, preservice students, and even parents who want to better understand their gifted children, and help them reach exceptional levels of performance.
