Overview

For the first time, the Gifted Child Today Reader series brings together the best articles published in Gifted Child Today, the nation's most popular gifted education journal. Each book in this series is filled with exciting and practical classroom ideas, useful summaries of research findings, discussions of identification and classroom management, and informed opinions about educating gifted kids. Anyone involved in education will benefit from the practical, research-based ideas this unique series has to offer.

Students who have both gifts and disabilities exhibit remarkable talents or strengths in one area and disabling weaknesses in another. For example, the student may be highly verbal, but may be disorganized or have poor spelling and handwriting skills, as well. As he or she grows older, the gap may widen between expectations and performance. The focus is only on the disability and not the gifts.

Teaching Gifted Students With Disabilities offers both general information on gifted students with disabilities, as well as specific analysis of those with ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. Several case studies offer an empathic first-person view from the eyes of teachers, parents, and the students themselves, and a section on identification and instructional strategies will arm teachers with crucial information and ideas on how to work with and help these students.
