Explaining Giftedness to Parents: Why It Matters What Professionals Say.
Sapon-Shevin, Mara
Roeper Review, v9 n3 p180-84 Feb 1987
Professional sensitivity and responsibility must be used to describe giftedness in ways that do not isolate gifted children or their parents and which encourage shared advocacy with other educational groups. More information is needed on how labeling of gifted students and conceptual frameworks surrounding exceptionalities affect societal and educational attitudes. (CB)
