Increasing Diversity in Gifted Education provides guidance for meeting the educational needs of high-potential students across many racial, ethnic, language, and economic groups as well as some categories of disability. Using this book, educators of high potential and gifted students from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented and underserved in gifted and advanced instructional settings, can guide these students to achieve and make significant contributions to all aspects of American society. Practitioners will also gain the information and knowledge needed to increase the identification of culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse (CLED) and twice-exceptional students for gifted education programs and services.

A Guide for Gifted Educators
Increasing Diversity in Gifted Education is a must read for administrators, specialists, teachers and others who work in gifted education.  In many schools and school districts, students from diverse populations, such as minorities, English language learners, students with learning disabilities and students living in poverty, have been underrepresented in gifted programs.  This informative and insightful book shares research-based best practices and strategies for identifying and providing program services for gifted students from underserved and underrepresented populations. The book provides practical solutions for increasing diversity in gifted education.  Now the work is to put these solutions into practice.

Review: Gifted Child Today - June 21, 2015
The book is personalized as authors provide a review of research they have conducted through surveying teachers in the field as well as a case study that provides a glimpse of the challenges and triumphs of a former CLED student. An appendices section provides easy-to-use resources that include tables and charts that summarize characteristics of CLED gifted students.
Review by: Daisy Thompson - March 12, 2015
As a Native American educator with more than 30 years of experience working with children and special education staff including professionals in gifted education this book is full of invaluable information for educators. Identification of gifted characteristics in children from culturally, linguistically, and ethically diverse (CLED) backgrounds are often challenging for educators. This book not only points out the characteristics of giftedness but also supports the evaluation and assessment of CLED children. I highly recommend it to clinicians, teachers, parents, and researchers who work with and know these talented special children.
