Formerly titled Losing Our Minds: Gifted Children Left Behind, this book describes differences in developmental stages within the gifted population. The children are classified into five levels of giftedness based on behaviors and developmental milestones, giving parents and educators a reference guide to compare with their own gifted children or students. A child's intellectual level can thus be estimated, after which the book provides different educational approaches and practical advice, including how to find the best type of school for each level.
