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 of students 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.
