A Case of Brilliance is Rebecca Hein’s memoir about the discovery that her two children, Annette and Lewis, are profoundly gifted. Through IQ testing and post-test counseling she and her husband learned the importance of early intervention.
If not for those tests, Rebecca and her husband would have continued to assume that their children were too young to practice the cello without supervision, or that the advanced math Lewis wanted to do was too hard. Instead, they gave both children greater latitude and tailored all their future home schooling to their advanced abilities.
Parents who are wondering whether or not their children are gifted should read this book. Anyone considering IQ testing for a bright child will find this memoir a compelling tale.
