RELEASE-FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
High IQ Kids Wins Legacy Book Award
The Legacy Book Award is the only American book award focused on meeting the unique and too-often overlooked needs of gifted children. It is awarded annually to one book in each of three categories (Educator, Parent/Family, and Scholar) by the nonprofit Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT).
High IQ Kids is a blend of personal stories and practical strategies, scholarly articles, and entertaining essays from a community of voices-parents, educators, authors, researchers, and other experts-addressing the joys and challenges of raising, teaching, and understanding exceptionally gifted kids of all ages. Profoundly gifted kids often get the least help in school. Most people assume they're "smart enough" to succeed on their own. Teachers (and parents) often feel out of their depth when working with these unique children. The book is recommended for any adult who wants, or may be desperate, to know more about high-IQ kids: how to support them, advocate for them, and meet their social, emotional, and learning needs.
High IQ Kids: Collected Insights, Information, and Personal Stories from the Experts is available through local and online booksellers (Free Spirit Publishing, ISBN 978-1-57542-261-9)
