Dr. James Webb is a well-known psychologists in the gifted education.
According to Dr. Webb, parents are the most critical factors in a gifted child's life, yet have
the fewest sources of gifted education details and information. Strange as it seems, many parents do
not even know that their children are extremely gifted and nature enabled!
One of the most difficult problems that a parent of a gifted child experiences relates to the educational
aspect, when gifted children tend to face many problem both in their classroom as well as out of it.
Dr. Webb claims that, "schools aren't set up for gifted children" and that "out
of each dollar for education, less than two pennies go to gifted education". Dr. Webb also recommends
parents to "keep alive the excitement about learning" in their children.
Dr. James T. Webb has been recognized as one of the 25 most influential psychologists nationally on gifted
education. A known authority on child giftedness, Dr. Webb is also an author of impeccable credentials.
Two of the most well-recognized books on giftedness are
A Parent's Guide to Gifted Children and
Guiding the Gifted Child: A Practical Source for Parents and Teachers.
Hope this help. Happy Halloween!

for learning to take place.
