This book is intended to support educators in the design and implementation of comprehensive gifted education plans. From planning to actual implementation, this book takes the reader from goals and purpose to assessing student needs and program design. The authors begin with a broad overview of best practices in programming and services, highlighting connections to student needs, programming standards, and state laws. Their recommendations include philosophical, cultural, and practical considerations and data-based decision making. In this book, Peters and Brulles guide the reader through the process of determining the most optimal programming methods for schools to take based on their individual needs and circumstances. With this book, schools will be able to design and develop programs and/or services that lay the foundation necessary to ensure all students are appropriately challenged.

Review by: Kay Shurtleff And Anne N. Rinn, Teachers College Record - March 22, 2018
Rather than being a compendium of all possible topics, this slim volume provides high-level perspective with encouragement for further study. That makes it particularly helpful to administrators new in their roles or to those who serve in multiple roles within their districts and cannot devote their full time and energies to improving their district’s gifted services.
Review by: Lewie Dunn, Georgia Military College - February 1, 2018
Prufrock Press has once again published another [g]reat work to assist educators in doing their jobs in educating students . . . This work should be in every district resource library and in every school media center for educators to gather information from.
