These six guides on identifying and assisting the gifted school-age child are specifically addressed to either clinical social workers, school social workers, school counselors, nurses, physicians, and psychologists. Each leaflet examines the role of the target professional in providing assistance to gifted children. For example, the social worker's role is viewed as assessing psychosocial status, evaluating emotional and behavioral functioning, and providing appropriate psychotherapeutic intervention; the counselor's role is defined as providing assistance with educational planning and placement, career development, personal growth and development, and life skills development; and the nurse's role includes assessing children's developmental skills and assessing concerns and behaviors of family members. Each leaflet discusses identification criteria and student characteristics, outlines intervention techniques, lists 6 organizational resources (emphasizing Michigan resources), and lists 11 books.
