Heilbronner authors book on gifted children
A teacher for more than 10 years and the mother of three gifted children, Dr. Nancy Heilbronner, Western Assistant Professor of Education and Educational Psychology, has a lot to say about the future of some of our brightest students.
Heilbronner’s book, “10 Things Not to Say to Your Gifted Child: One Family’s Perspective,” which was recently published by Great Potential Press, provides information and support to parents of gifted children. Heilbronner is also a co-author of “Think Data,” along with Drs. Joseph Renzulli and Del Siegle, researchers and educators at the University of Connecticut who specialize in the study of gifted children. In her book, “10 Things Not to Say to Your Gifted Child,” Heilbronner includes the advice and experience of her three grown children, who provide their perspectives on what it was like growing up differently and out of the mainstream.
