The Affective Side: Gifted Identification and the Call to Advocacy.
Strop, Jean
Understanding Our Gifted, v15 n3 p24-26 Spr 2003
This article lists common pitfalls in parents' gifted advocacy attempts: believing exceptionality is synonymous with entitlement; responding to stated boredom without determining the meaning; waiting for a crisis before advocating; pushing for a response before agreeing on the issue; and advocating from their own issues. Strategies for developing self-advocacy are provided. (CR)
