Review

Having worked with exceptional children, I understand the need for parents, teachers and counselors to address the challenges with this very special group of children and teens. With the challenges come great rewards. I believe this book will enlighten and inspire all who read it. (Debra Welborn, author, speaker, and founder of the non-profit agency: Community Health Management Services, Inc.)

Dr. Callard-Szulgit has written a comprehensive, up-to-date, and informative book about a neglected segment of our school population: gifted children with one or more diagnosed disabilities. The format of the book is approachable, especially for parents, as it provides explanations of each of the twice exceptional categories, as well as useful tips for addressing these issues with school personnel. Too, her use of personal vignettes of students she knows who possess these dual exceptionalities adds a realistic and tender perspective to this important, understudied topic. I applaud Dr. Callard-Szulgit for providing a needed resource to both parents and professionals. (James R. Delisle, Ph.D., distinguished professor of education, Kent State University (OH))

Rosemary Szulgit's new book, Twice-Exceptional Kids offers insights and suggestions for parents and professionals. Often misunderstood and frequently neglected or ignored, twice-exceptional children finally are given the attention they deserve. This book provides relevant case studies, strategies, and ideas for teaching and working with twice-exceptional children. This book could also serve as a supplementary text in a course about children with disabilities. (Janet Medina, Psy.D., associate professor, Department of Education, McDaniel College (MD))

About the Author

Dr. Callard-Szulgit Ed.D has thirty-seven years of experience in education, with a focus on gifted children, their education and parenting. She is currently an adjunct professor with the State University at Buffalo and runs her own education consulting business, Partners for Excellence in Rochester, NY.

Excellent Start for Parents and Teachers Aug. 27 2009
By Educator of Gifted - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a novice in the field of gifted kids with learning disabilities, I found "Twice-Exceptional" excellent in helping me understand the core concepts of 2E children and how to help them in my clasroom. So many times topics become too complex. Dr. Callard-Szulgit was able to present clear and precise information while giving teachers/parents practical suggestions on how to work with children and their disabilities to achieve optimum success!
This is definitely a necessary read for any teachers or parents who will be working with twice-exceptional children.
Very basic and very broad over view of certain types ... Nov. 30 2014
By M.S. in Child Development - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very basic and very broad over view of certain types of LD's. There are several chapters on topics ranging from ADHD to dyslexia. Each chapter gives a tiny bit of info. about the LD and then a couple bullet points of how parents/teachers can help. In my opinion, we all know most kids, especially those with challenges, respond to a scheduled day and predictable routines. These are the bits of advice the book has to offer. Not a ton of information on the gifted aspects of the child. I would think this book could be condensed into a pamphlet.
