Overview

This thought-provoking book addresses a key issue related to inclusion: what place is there for gifted and talented learners? Here, a range of internationally renowned experts on gifted education challenge the assumption that educational inclusion relates only to those pupils with learning difficulties. Many countries are pursuing inclusive ideals while also trying to address the needs of their gifted and talented pupils.

Including the Gifted and Talented ties the two fields together and suggests that inclusion and gifted education are, indeed, compatible as long as key tensions are recognised and addressed. By engaging in discussion about the nature of inclusion and how varying interpretations can lead to very different practices being implemented, the effectiveness of educating our most able pupils is examined. The contributors to this unique text explore vital and timely issues such as: What does inclusion mean for the gifted and talented? Can segregated interventions be inclusive? Are 'regular' classrooms the best place to educate gifted and talented pupils? What can ordinary schools do to promote inclusion for gifted and talented learners? This book is essential reading for any practitioner, academic or student grappling with the difficult issues that surround inclusion and the effect that its varying interpretations can have on the most able learners.

It is written with clarity and ease of access. The book is quite a treasure for launching new teachers into their classroom careers, and will also be useful for experienced teachers who need to update their skills to be effective with learners with ASDs." - Sandra L.
