I think this is a great book for families who have children who are twice exceptional. This book has gotten good reviews and is a newer publication.

This book is extremely well researched and very meticulously detailed. Dr. Lovecky has made an enormous contribution to parents and educators of children who are gifted and have other exceptionalities such as ADHD, Asperger's, and NVLD. I read this book with a highlighter in hand, as there were so many observations and anecdotes that resonated with my own experience with twice-exceptional children.
