Overview

While the past 25 years have seen a growing interest in students with both gifts and learning disabilities, the published material has focused predominantly on students who have only one area of gifts — high IQ. Students with Both Gifts and Learning Disabilities tries to provide the reader with a broader conceptualization of the gifted/LD learner to include students who have gifts in other domains and who would benefit from being identified and having their talents nurtured. This volume aims to: Provide information for elementary, secondary, and college educators including pre-service teachers, special and regular education teachers, gifted coordinators, college resource centers, and educational administrators who are looking to develop a better understanding ofstudents with unusual learning profiles; Provide resources for both education and psychology researchers to enlighten the state of research in this area and to provide the impetus for future work; Provide information for families, including parents and students who have differential learning profiles and who are looking for a greater understanding of what this means to them. Students with Both Gifts and Learning Disabilities provides ideas for educators, parents, and students, and stimulates more questions to be answered by researchers.
