Some kids, including gifted students, have difficulties in school. Gifted students with learning disabilities may continuously struggle with certain areas of instruction, but never receive identification of or accommodation for their difficulties, because their gifts mask their disabilities. Gifted students with learning disabilities need unique instruction and a practical use of accommodations to succeed in school. It is important for educators to familiarize themselves with the definitions and characteristics of various learning disabilities and learn the strategies they can use in the classroom to help gifted/learning-disabled students succeed. In this book, Kevin Besnoy takes an in-depth look at the various learning disabilities and difficulties some gifted students face, provides practical tips for accommodating and planning instruction for those students, and gives an overview of federal law related to this population. This is one of the books in Prufrock Press' popular Practical Strategies Series in Gifted Education. This series offers a unique collection of tightly focused books that provide a concise, practical introduction to important topics concerning the education of gifted children. The guides offer a perfect beginner's introduction to key information about gifted and talented education.

In an educational system founded on rigid standards and categories, students who demonstrate a very specific manifestation of intelligence flourish, while those who deviate tend to fall between the cracks. Too often, talents and interests that do not align with classroom conventions are left unrecognized and unexplored in children with extraordinary potential but little opportunity. For twice-exceptional (2e) children, who have extraordinary strengths coupled with learning difficulties, the problem is compounded by the paradoxical nature of their intellect and an unbending system, ill-equipped to cater to their unique learning needs. Twice Exceptional: Supporting and Educating Bright and Creative Students with Learning Difficulties provides cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to creating an environment where twice-exceptional students can thrive. Viewing the 2e student as neither exclusively disabled nor exclusively gifted, but, rather, as a dynamic interaction of both, leading experts offer holistic insight into identification, social-emotional development, advocacy, and support for 2e students. With chapters focusing on special populations (including autism, dyslexia, and ADHD) as well as the intersection of race and 2e, this book highlights practical recommendations for school and social contexts. In expounding the unique challenges faced by the 2e population, Twice Exceptional makes a case for greater flexibility in our approach to education and a wider notion of what it means to be academically successful.

America's public schools strive to educate all children in an inclusive environment. Consequently, children of varying skill levels learn together in today's classrooms. While there are individual children with distinctive or exceptional learning needs in every classroom, some youngsters show a pattern of extreme strengths combined with areas of significant difficulty. These yongsters are commonly referred to as twice-exceptional; students who have outstanding gifts or talents and are capable of high performance, but who also have a disability that affects some aspect of learning (Brody & Mills, 1997). This guide will: Address identification considerations for students who are twice-exceptional; Provide common characteristics of students who are both gifted and disabled; Explain obstacles and learning difficulties faced by these students; Identify the roles and responsibilities of school districts for ensuring appropriate programming for twice-exceptional students; Identify the roles and responsibilities of teachers for addressing the needs of twice-exceptional students; Suggest some adaptations, accomodations, and available resources.

Educational outcomes of college students (e.g., GPA, retention, graduation, and years to graduation) of undergraduate students screened and selected for 2e status (2e; giftedness with a learning disability) did not differ significantly (p > .05) based on two operationalizations (of 2e status): ACT or SAT scores. However, significantly more 2e students were screened from ACT scores relative to the number screened from SAT scores (p .05). Further investigation into academic outcomes revealed that students screened as 2e by the ACT were significantly more likely to be retained after their first year of college when they declared a major in line with their academic strength (p

Gifted and talented students with coexisting learning disabilities, also known as twice-exceptional, are increasingly recognized in U.S. schools. This increasing awareness needs to be met with improved legal protection, better methods for identification and optimized teaching strategies for the unique needs of these students. For this thesis, literature from a range of disciplines including education, cognitive science, and psychology regarding twice-exceptionality is examined, with a specific focus on gifted students with language-based learning disabilities like dyslexia, along with commonly comorbid factors such as ADHD and anxiety. The challenges of these students are also modeled using human centered design tools. Personas of archetypal twice-exceptional students are presented to create empathy for them and awareness of their unmet needs. Design frameworks are examined that aim to improve education universally for all students. Research strongly suggests that twice-exceptional students are under-identified and underserved in our schools and that comprehensive, individualized teaching strategies are necessary in order for them to reach their full potential. Teaching methods are outlined that simultaneously highlight strengths and accommodate the challenges of this important group of gifted learners.

Twice-exceptional (2e) learners have often been misunderstood, disciplined, unchallenged, and left behind. They're called lazy and unmotivated. But they're not: a diagnosis, such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, or anxiety, masks their giftedness. Or their giftedness blocks educators from seeing their struggles.
