Jennifer Cross, research assistant professor and director of research of the Center for Gifted Education, and Tracy L. Cross, Jody and Layton Smith Professor of Psychology and Gifted Education and director of the Center for Gifted Education, recently launched a new co-edited book, Providing for the Special Needs of Students with Gifts & Talents.
The book was a collaboration with authors from Ireland, the US, Scotland, Greece, Germany, Hungary, and Slovenia. It is a resource for parents, researchers, educators — anyone who works with or cares for gifted students by providing them with “effective tools to facilitate and empower talented students as they work towards their academic, social and emotional goals.” Providing for the Special Needs of Students with Gifts & Talents is available as an e-book on Amazon.
The book launched on November 25 at Dublin City University (DCU) and was attended by distinguished guests including Brian MacCraith, president of DCU and author of the book’s foreword, and Ciaran Cannon, the Irish Minister of State for the Diaspora and International Development. In addition to the launch, Jennifer and Tracy Cross presented their research at the annual conference of the Centre for Talented Youth-Ireland, the largest European provider of gifted programming.
