In developing a differentiated curriculum for children who are a part of this special population, teachers and other school professionals will find the research-based strategies and discussions presented in Twice-Exceptional Gifted Children: Understanding, Teaching, and Counseling Gifted Students to be both practical and beneficial.

Beverly Trail brought her 22 years in education to bear in writing this book. In less than 200 pages she has compiled all of the essential information needed to understand who twice-exceptional children are, what challenges they need to face, what the consequences are of not addressing their challenges, and how professionals and parents can work together to meet the needs of this underserved population of students.

As a parent and advocate for gifted students, I want this book--and the breadth and depth of information it offers in one place--to be something with which every one of my children's teachers is very familiar...If all the stakeholders in gifted and twice-exceptional student education were to be familiar with the insights and suggestions in this book, so much practical progress could be made: everyone would be on the same page (so to speak) with a foundation and strategies for early intervention and twice-exceptional student success!
