2016: Misdiagnosis and dual diagnoses of gifted children and adults

Gifted children and adults are frequently misdiagnosed, particularly those who are twice-exceptional (2e). This much-anticipated second edition of a best-selling book is your guide to help prevent that. Some of our brightest, most creative children and adults are misdiagnosed as having behavioral or emotional disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or Asperger’s Disorder. Many receive unneeded medications and/or inappropriate counseling. How can this happen? Physicians, psychologists, and counselors often are unaware of characteristics of gifted children and adults that mimic pathological diagnoses. Seven prominent healthcare professionals guide parents and professionals to distinguish between behaviors that are pathological and those that are “normal” for gifted individuals.

Topics include:

  • The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) and ICD-10
  • Diagnoses most commonly given to gifted children and adults
  • Learning disabilities and other 2e issues
  • Allergies, asthma, and hypoglycemia
  • Addictive disorders
  • Issues for gifted adults
  • Advice for selecting a counselor or healthcare professional

2016: Gifted and talented children with special educational needs. Double exceptionality

Gifted pupils who also have special needs often receive provision for the special need whilst the giftedness is overlooked. Children with such double exceptionality can become depressed, frustrated and misbehave, and may not fulfill their potential. Based on international research and practice, this practical text enables the reader to identify highly able pupils with special needs, such as ADHD, dyspraxia, and dyslexia, and then make provision for them within the mainstream school. The book offers three emerging themes: creating a positive, constructive and supportive learning environment; offering a cognitively challenging curriculum; and engaging the learners in partnership to understand and manage their learning support. Whilst aimed mainly at teachers and students at both primary and secondary levels, this book should also be of interest to educators, researchers and educational psychologists.

2013: Off the charts. Asynchrony and the gifted child

The editors have brought together 19 essays by renowned gifted education specialists (see below for the full list) to produce this important new publication for 2013.

Off the Charts is an exploration of the effects of asynchronous development on gifted children and adults. It contains sections on Asynchrony and the Individual, Asynchrony and the Family, Asynchrony and Learning and chapters describe the nature of asynchrony, methods of dealing with the challenges of asynchrony, and recommendations for adapting education in a variety of settings. A Bibliography on Asynchronous Development provides extensive further reading.

The contributors’ contention is that Gifted Education should be from a child-centered perspective, rather than from a ‘product perspective’ in which the emphasis is on achievement, competition and outer recognition. The child-centered approach concentrates on self-development and personal growth and fosters interrelatedness and wholeness.

It is an important resource for parents, teachers, counselors, and others concerned with the optimal development of gifted to highly-gifted individuals.

The book is dedicated to Annemarie Roeper (1918-2012) who before she died contributed a chapter.

2012: Perfectionism and gifted children

Parents and educators expect gifted children to be well-behaved, studious, and hard working. Why, then, do so many have trouble in school? According to Dr. Rosemary Callard-Szulgit, perfectionism—the number one social-emotional trait of gifted children—can actually immobilize some children and cause social adjustment problems for others. This explains why so many of today’s gifted children do not, or cannot, complete school assignments or even follow through on personal responsibilities.

During her forty-five year career, Callard-Szulgit has helped hundreds of students and their parents recover from the harmful effects of being perfectionists. In her second edition of Perfectionism and Gifted Children, Callard-Szulgit provides practical insight into perfectionism, discussing why so many gifted children are perfectionists while also providing common sense solutions to the problems this presents. This book will be helpful to families and educators of gifted students, as well as to gifted children themselves. The expanded question and answer section will better help parents and teachers ease children’s anxieties and behaviors that stem from the problems of perfectionism. Appendixes list current associations and advocacy groups, Internet resources, journals and magazines that address the special needs of the gifted and talented.

2004: Exceptionally gifted children

Exceptionally Gifted Children is unique. The first edition of this book, published in 1993, introduced 15 remarkable children, some of the most gifted young people ever studied, and traced their path through school, exploring their academic achievements (and in some cases enforced underachievement), their emotional development, their social relationships and their family relationships and upbringing. This new edition reviews these early years but also follows the young people over the subsequent ten years into adulthood.

No previous study has traced so closely and so sensitively the intellectual, social and emotional development of highly gifted young people. This 20 year study reveals the ongoing negative academic and social effects of prolonged underachievement and social isolation imposed on gifted children by inappropriate curriculum and class placement and shows clearly the long lasting benefits of thoughtfully planned individual educational programs. The young adults of this study speak out and show how what happened in school has influenced and still influences many aspects of their lives. Miraca Gross provides a clear, practical blueprint for teachers and parents who recognise the special learning needs of gifted children and seek to respond effectively.

1991: Counseling gifted and talented children. A guide for teachers, counselors, and parents

There is a gap between the enormous need for counseling services and research about the counseling needs of gifted individuals, on the one hand, and the limited availability of such services and knowledge on the other. This book is designed to give counselors, classroom teachers, gifted education specialists, and parents an understanding of the academic and social-personal needs of gifted and talented students, awareness of ways that they themselves may help these children, and an introduction to the available guidance strategies and materials. This book highlights the role of regular classroom teachers and teachers of the gifted in counseling; provides teachers, counselors, and parents with information about the wide variety of approaches to enrichment and/or acceleration; emphasizes the major role of parents in the development of their gifted children; stresses career education and guidance. Four chapters are devoted to important topics that have received very little attention to date-gifted girls, preschool gifted, disadvantaged gifted, and learning-disabled gifted. Finally, a unique feature of the book is a chapter in which fictional portraits of gifted and creative children are presented and analyzed.

2017: Meer dan intelligent. De vele gezichten van hoogbegaafdheid bij jongeren en volwassenen

Een vernieuwende kijk op hoe het potentieel van hoogbegaafden tot volle ontwikkeling kan komen

Niet elke hoogbegaafde gaat op dezelfde manier om met prestaties. De ene wordt er gelukkig van, de ander zet zich pas in als hij er het nut van inziet en nog een ander kan niet omgaan met hoge verwachtingen.

In dit baanbrekende boek leggen hoogbegaafdheidsexperts Tessa Kieboom en Kathleen Venderickx de vele valkuilen bloot die aanwezig talent kunnen fnuiken. Maar ze reiken ook concrete tools aan die hoogbegaafden kunnen helpen om hun talenten te laten floreren en gelukkiger in het leven te staan.

2016: Hoogbegaafde kinderen opvoeden. Praktische gids voor de sociaal-emotionele begeleiding van hoogbegaafde kinderen en jongeren

Veel hoogbegaafde kinderen voelen zich vanaf de vroege kleuterjaren niet in hun sas. Het sterke contrast tussen hun heel snelle cognitieve ontwikkeling en de andere ontwikkelingsaspecten, is vaak een bron van irritatie en onzekerheid.

Op zulke momenten hebben deze kinderen iemand nodig die hen begrijpt en vooral iemand die om hen geeft. Het spreekt voor zich dat ouders, maar ook leerkrachten, in deze jaren een cruciale rol spelen. Het is precies in deze vroege jaren dat bepaalde gedragspatronen zich inslijpen tot blijvende gewoontes. Daarom is het zo belangrijk dat volwassenen vroeg starten met een specifieke begeleiding voor deze kinderen en dit het liefst vòòr de leeftijd van 4 à 5 jaar. Dit boek wil de lezer wegwijs maken in deze bijzondere behoeften aan begeleiding. Het bevat honderden tips over wat best wel te doen en wat liever niet te doen bij het begeleiden van hoogbegaafde kinderen en jongeren.

Begrip en steun van volwassenen geeft niet enkel richting aan de ontwikkeling van het kind, maar reikt vooral modellen van sterkte aan, waarop het kind nadien kan terugvallen.

2015: Verborgen hoogbegaafdheid. Een gids voor leerkrachten

Hoe kunnen leerkrachten voorkomen dat zij hoogbegaafdheid niet of pas heel laat signaleren? Over deze vraag is nog maar weinig gepubliceerd en Ben Daeter geeft in deze gids een aantal handreikingen. Hoogbegaafden vertellen zelf over het verborgen blijven van hun hoogbegaafdheid en welke impact dit heeft gehad. Ze geven ook suggesties om te voorkomen dat bij anderen in de toekomst hun hoogbegaafdheid verborgen blijft.

Op basis van deze verhalen geeft de auteur een aantal handvatten aan leerkrachten, zodat zij hoogbegaafdheid tijdig kunnen signaleren en er adequaat mee om kunnen gaan. Hij gaat uitvoerig in op de kwestie van het tijdig inspringen op een mogelijke ontwikkelingsvoorsprong van een kind, onder andere met behulp van suggesties voor een observatieverslag. In nagenoeg alle levensverhalen komen de onderwerpen onderpresteren, onbekendheid met hoogbegaafdheid en faalangst aan de orde. Deze onderwerpen krijgen dan ook uitvoerig de aandacht.

Leerkrachten (en ook toekomstige leerkrachten) kunnen deze gids gebruiken om hun onderwijs zo in te richten dat zij alert zijn en hoogbegaafdheid tijdig signaleren. Daarnaast kunnen ook volwassenen die menen dat ze met een verborgen hoogbegaafdheid te maken hebben herkenning vinden.

2015: Een andere kijk op hoogbegaafdheid

Wat is hoogbegaafdheid? Er is geen eenduidige definitie van hoogbegaafdheid, en dé hoogbegaafde bestaat niet. Bij hoogbegaafdheid denken we in eerste instantie aan moeilijke concepten kunnen begrijpen en aan snel kunnen denken. Maar bij hoogbegaafdheid hoort ook overspoeld raken door prikkels. En je noodgedwongen aanpassen omdat het lijkt alsof je echte ik niet past binnen de sociale normen. Dat hebben de auteurs allen zelf ervaren en vanuit deze ervaringen beschrijven zij – en bepleiten zij – een andere kijk op hoogbegaafdheid. Vanuit dit kader bespreken zij een aantal belangwekkende thema’s: intelligentie, gedrag, prikkelverwerking, onderwijs, een andere kijk op onderzoek en tests. Ook komt de stand van zaken vanuit de wetenschap aan bod en noteren zij een staalkaart aan ervaringen van jongere en oudere hoogbegaafden. Aan het slot van elk hoofdstuk staan uitgebreide tips en adviezen aan ouders, leerkrachten en kinderen om beter om te leren gaan met hoogbegaafdheid.

Het gaat bij hoogbegaafdheid niet om prestaties. Het gaat er zelfs niet om dat je het beste uit hoogbegaafden haalt. Mariken Althuizen, Esther de Boer en Nathalie van Kordelaar willen duidelijk maken dat hoogbegaafdheid gaat om je ‘zijn’ dat zich ontwikkelt in de loop van je leven. En met de opgedane inzichten uit Een andere kijk op hoogbegaafdheid kun je je ‘zijn’ sturen in de richting die jij wilt.

Let op: niet alle theorieën en modellen in dit boek zijn wetenschappelijk gefundeerd.

2015: Ik ben een kind, gelukkig & gevoelig hoogbegaafd

Dit boek is een samenvoeging van de boeken Gelukkig hoogbegaafd en Gevoelig hoogbegaafd, aangevuld met een hoofdstuk over hoogbegaafde meisjes.

Gelukkig hoogbegaafd

In het boek Gelukkig hoogbegaafd, geeft de auteur handen en voeten aan de begeleiding van hoogbegaafde kinderen. De wijze waarop zij dat doet is gebaseerd op haar ervaring dat hoogbegaafde kinderen pas gaan leren en ontwikkelen, als ze gelukkig zijn. Daarvoor is een kennis en begrip van de levensbehoefte van hoogbegaafde kinderennodig. Om haar visie te verduidelijken, gebruikt de auteur veel praktijkvoorbeelden en geeft ze tips die zowel thuis, op school als op de kinderopvang toepasbaar zijn. Dit boek is een handreiking aan iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in hoogbegaafde kinderen. Bovenal is het een ode aan de kinderen die de auteur de afgelopen jaren heeft mogen zien opbloeien in haar plusgroepen.

Gevoelig hoogbegaafd

Vaak ontstaan de vragen, twijfels en worstelingen van hoogbegaafde kinderen niet alleen vanuit een hoog IQ. Ze komen ook vanuit hun gevoeligheid, vanuit een verhoogd bewustzijn. Hoogbegaafde kinderen nemen meer waar. Alle intense ervaringen die hoogbegaafde kinderen en volwassenen iedere dag weer opdoen, hebben een plek nodig, moeten verwerkt worden. Hiervoor zijn vertrouwen en zelfrefl ectie nodig. Wanneer hoogbegaafde kinderen en volwassenen zichzelf beter leren begrijpen, krijgen ze meer grip op hun leven en kunnen ze een gelukkiger leven gaan leiden. Door middel van de praktijkverhalen in Gevoelig hoogbegaafd geeft de auteur meer inzicht in hoe volwassenen een betere begeleiding kunnen geven aan gevoelig hoogbegaafde kinderen. Om deze verhalen te ondersteunen, is gebruikgemaakt van de kennis van onderzoekers op het gebied van hoogbegaafdheid en hoogsensitiviteit.

2013: De begeleiding van hoogbegaafde kinderen

Ouders die ontdekken dat hun kind hoogbegaafd is, zijn niet altijd blij en trots. Ze voelen zich soms voor een zware taak gesteld. Dit boek biedt talloze suggesties om hoogbegaafde kinderen te helpen om een goed zelfbeeld te ontwikkelen.

Professionals als leerkrachten, leerlingbegeleiders en pedagogen kunnen ook bijdragen aan een gezond zelfrespect en voldoende zelfvertrouwen van hoogbegaafde kinderen. Ze krijgen door dit boek meer inzicht in het gevoelsleven en de gedachtenwereld van hoogbegaafde kinderen.

De begeleiding van hoogbegaafde kinderen is het meest complete boek over het opvoeden van hoogbegaafde kinderen. Het zet de lezer aan tot nadenken en vermijdt de valkuil van ogenschijnlijk eenvoudige oplossingen die hooguit voor korte tijd werken. Omdat het om een zeer heterogene groep kinderen gaat, zullen hun opvoeding en begeleiding altijd maatwerk vragen. Daarvoor geeft dit boek een schat aan praktische tips en adviezen.

De oorspronkelijke uitgave A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children is een bewerking van het in de Verenigde Staten bekroonde boek Guiding the Gifted Child. De auteurs zijn erkende deskundigen uit de praktijk van de begeleiding van hoogbegaafde kinderen. In deze vertaling is de tekst waar nodig aangepast aan de situatie in Nederland. Wereldwijd het meest gelezen en hoogst gewaardeerde boek over de opvoeding van getalenteerde, creatieve en begaafde kinderen, geschreven vanuit het wetenschappelijk gefundeerde inzicht dat het emotionele welbevinden het meest bepalend is voor de levensloop en het levensgeluk van hoogbegaafde kinderen.

2012: Hoogbegaafde pubers. Onderweg naar hun toekomst

Een sterk rechtvaardigheidsgevoel, hoge eisen stellen aan jezelf, niet weten hoe je moet studeren, twijfelen over een vervolgstudie, je anders voelen dan anderen …

In dit boek komen hoogbegaafde jongeren aan het woord. Ze vertellen over hun leven thuis en op school, hun ervaringen met of juist zonder vrienden, hun idealen en dromen. In elf hoofdstukken willen de auteurs hoogbegaafde jongeren (in de tienerleeftijd) en hun ouders bereiken met ervaringen en informatie. Deze verhalen kunnen daarnaast ook voor leraren, psychologen en artsen van grote waarde zijn, waardoor zij in hun werk deze jongeren (eerder) herkennen en beter met hen kunnen omgaan.

De auteurs, Janneke Breedijk, leerkracht en Specialist in Gifted Education, en Noks Nauta, bedrijfsarts, psycholoog en deskundig op het gebied van hoogbegaafde volwassenen, verzamelden gegevens op basis van interviews en vulden de verkregen informatie aan met professionele en persoonlijke ervaringen. Ze hopen dat jongeren door het lezen over de verschillende personages meer inzicht in zichzelf zullen krijgen en op basis daarvan de weg vinden naar een succesvol en gelukkig leven als hoogbegaafde volwassene.

Hoogbegaafde pubers, onderweg naar hun toekomst is een wegwijzer op het pad dat iedere jongere zelf moet vinden.

2011: Ongekend hoogbegaafd. 13 portretten

Hoogbegaafdheid is tegenwoordig een bekend begrip. Maar hoe is het om hoogbegaafd te zijn? De kennis hierover is beperkt tot theoretische studies en tests. Wanneer er van hoogbegaafdheid sprake is, gaat met meestal óver de mensen, kinderen vaak, die hoogbegaafd zijn en hoe met hen om te gaan. Het begrip van binnenuit is nog beperkt.

Ongekend hoogbegaafd bevat portretten van elf volwassenen en twee pubers die vertellen hoe ze omgaan met hoogbegaafdheid en daarin hun weg vinden. Duidelijk wordt hoe een voordeel lastig kan zijn en hoe het, onder welke voorwaarden, voordeliger wordt. De uiteenlopende ervaringen zijn aangevuld met een inleidende beschouwing en een hoofdstuk over consequenties voor het onderwijs.

2010: Zie je me wel? Motiveren van begaafde leerlingen in het VWO

De leerling die de hooggespannen verwachtingen maar niet waarmaakt is in het onderwijs een bekend fenomeen. Begaafde leerlingen hebben vaak een extra duwtje nodig. Zodra aandacht wordt besteed aan hun bijzondere talenten, autonomie en creativiteit, kunnen zij zich ontwikkelen tot gelukkige leerlingen.

In dit boek worden drie projecten beschreven: het verbredingsproject, het POP-project (Persoonlijk Ontwikkelings Plan) en het TOP-project (Toekomstgericht Ontwikkelings Plan). Doel van het verbredingsproject is het verbreden van kennis van leerlingen die meer kunnen en meer willen dan de gemiddelde leerling. Het POP-project is een methode om onderpresterende begaafde leerlingen tot en met de derde klas te motiveren. In het TOP-project tenslotte helpen onderpresteerders vanaf de vierde klas elkaar om motivatie voor het schoolse leren te ontwikkelen.

Vanaf dan moet er weer gepresteerd, gepland, zelfstandig geleerd worden. In al deze projecten wordt steeds ingegaan op signalering, begeleiding en contacten met de ouders. Het geheel is een praktische handleiding met een wetenschappelijke onderbouwing waarmee scholen direct aan de slag kunnen.

2009: Hoogbegaafd, nou én? Ontdek-boek over hoogbegaafdheid

Wat is dat nu precies, hoogbegaafd zijn? Wanneer ben je dan hoogbegaafd? En moet je daar dan iets mee, met dat hoogbegaafd?

Dit boek geeft antwoorden op deze en nog veel meer vragen over hoogbegaafdheid. En vooral over hoe dat nu voor jou voelt, zeker als je de uitzondering in de klas of je omgeving bent. Want soms kan het best lastig zijn dat je hoogbegaafd bent. Soms ook leuk. In ieder geval ben je in een aantal opzichten gewoon anders dan andere, ‘gemiddeld’ begaafde kinderen. Dat ‘anders zijn’ ervaar je misschien wel elke dag.

Als ervaren adviseur en therapeut van hoogbegaafde kinderen verheldert Lammers van Toorenburg, theoretisch en praktisch, hoe hoogbegaafde kinderen de wereld om zich heen kunnen ervaren. Daarbij spreekt ze de kinderen persoonlijk aan en gebruikt hun eigen taal.

Alle tot nu toe verschenen literatuur over hoogbegaafdheid is geschreven over hen, niet voor hen. Terwijl zij er wel elk moment van hun leven mee te maken hebben.

Specifieke onderwerpen die besproken worden zijn: je ‘anders’ of eenzaam voelen, onderpresteren, verveling op school, pesten, aanpassen, leerstijlen. Ze laat zien hoe deze problemen kunnen ontstaan en reikt volop manieren aan om daar mee om te gaan.

Voor kinderen van 5 tot 99 jaar!
