Rimm, Sylvia B.
Great Potential Press, Inc.
Millions of gifted children are failing to reach their potential--something Dr. Sylvia Rimm calls underachievement syndrome. Drawing on both clinical research and years of experience counseling families, Dr. Rimm has developed a "Trifocal Model" to help parents and teachers work together to get students back on track. It is effective for a wide range of students, from preschool through college. Dr. Rimm's practical, six-step program provides everything you need to know to turn your child or student's underachievement into success.
