I came across this interesting picture today about giftedness. It's from a publication of Esther de Boer and Nora Booij, who wrote 'excellentie in ontwikkeling.' It gives a clear view of how children are let down when people look at things from their own view. The english translation:
''can you give me the red block you have?'
'The RED BLOCK!!!'
''Don't whine Ivo.... you díd get a block didn't you?'
''Ivo may be really smart, his emotionally he is still behind....''
