Les tribulations d un petit z bre
Le mot "zèbre" a été créé par la psychologue Jeanne Siaud-Facchin pour désigner les enfants intellectuellement précoces, c'est-à-dire à haut quotient. Aujourd'hui couramment utilisé par la communauté de surdoués, il souligne sans la stigmatiser la différence dont peuvent souffrir les personnes dont le quotient intellectuel est supérieur à 130. Alexandra Reynaud est la maman d'un petit zèbre dont le THPI (Très haut potentiel intellectuel) est découvert lorsqu'il a quatre ans. Son blog "Les Tribulations d'un Petit Zèbre", témoigne du quotidien et du parcours de son fils, et devient une référence sur le sujet du surdouement. Cet ouvrage retrace l'histoire de son fils Elijah depuis le diagnostic posé en 2008 jusqu'à aujourd'hui : ses passions, sa formidable soif de découverte, ses joies, sa sensibilité. Mais aussi ses peines, ses difficultés au sein de l'institution scolaire face à certains enseignants ou enfants qui ne comprennent pas ses différences et sa douance.

'Imagine that tomorrow neurotic response is so accelerated on this earth that an I.Q. of 500 is commonplace, a moron has the thinking capacity of yesterday's intellectual. Poul Anderson's detailedly plausible exploration of his theme makes for an unusually satisfying and stimulating book.'
Living with Intensity
Gifted children and adults are often misunderstood. Their excitement is viewed as excessive, their high energy as hyperactivity, their persistence as nagging, their imagination as not paying attention, their passion as being disruptive, their strong emotions and sensitivity as immaturity, their creativity and self-directedness as oppositional. This resource describes these overexcitabilities and strategies for dealing with children and adults who are experiencing them, and provides essential information about Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration. Learn practical methods for nurturing sensitivity, intensity, perfectionism, and much more.
