Quick Overview

Non-verbal ability does not readily show itself on standardised
achievement testing or in schoolwork - especially after Year 1 when students
are increasingly asked to show what they know in writing. Sometimes kids
who seem pretty typical surprise us with an insight, suddenly performing a
task beyond their years or simply seem to know without being able to explain
how they know. These are the kids who are often left out of gifted programs in
school yet they offer the sort of 21st century skills that will make
our world a better place. This book is addressed to all those parents who
wonder about their child's flashes of brilliance but cannot quite lay a finger
on a particular gift, and the teachers who see the same gleam in a student's
eyes.

Non-verbal ability does not readily show itself on standardised achievement testing or in schoolwork – especially after Year 1 when students are increasingly asked to show what they know in writing.

High non-verbal ability might take a little detective to discover. These are sometimes the kids who seem pretty typical yet surprise us with an insight, suddenly perform a task beyond their years or simply seem to “know” without being able to explain how they know. These are the kids who are often left out of gifted programs in school yet they offer the sort of 21st century skills that will make our world a better place.

This book is addressed to all those parents who wonder about their child’s flashes of brilliance but cannot quite lay a finger on a particular gift. It’s addressed to teachers – public, private and home school – who see the same gleam in a student’s eyes. Finally, it’s addressed to parents whose children have already been identified gifted and talented through their school and whose children may or may not be served by gifted and talented programs designed specifically to meet the needs of non-verbally gifted students. This is a conversation between you and me – a teacher and a parent of non-verbally gifted children.

Topics discussed in Understanding & Nurturing Non-Verbally Gifted Learners include Understanding Non-Verbally Gifted Learners, Characteristics of Non-Verbal Ability, Nurturing Non-Verbal Ability in Gifted Learners and more.
