Giftedness exists on a continuum--there is a broad range of traits and behaviors that children can exhibit based on where they fall in that continuum. "5 Levels of Gifted is an award-winning book describing these differences within the gifted population. Author Deborah Ruf looks at 78 gifted children and groups them into five levels of giftedness based on developmental milestones, as well as test data. This information gives parents and educators a reference guide to compare with their own gifted children or students. The author then offers different educational approaches and practical advice, including how to find the best type of school for children at each level.
