In this fully updated second edition - Different Minds provides an insight into the challenges and benefits specific to gifted children with attention difficulties. Recognising the different kinds and levels of giftedness, it explains why certain children are gifted and how giftedness is manifested, with each chapter addressing the relevance of a specific topic for children with AD/HD and Asperger Syndrome.

Lovecky guides parents and professionals through methods of diagnosis and advises on how best to nurture individual needs, positive behaviour and relationships at home and at school. Lovecky explores concepts such as asynchrony and the effects of such `uneven development on children, using case studies to illustrate emotional, intellectual, creative and social development. She also highlights the inadequate measures currently in place to assist parents and teachers and goes on to clearly define what is required to understand and help these children so that their needs can be met more positively in the future.

Different Minds, with its wealth of practical and background information, is essential reading for all those who live or work with gifted children with attention difficulties.
