References This article explores the current policies and practices with regard to defining, identifying, and educating this population. Recommendations are included that would help ensure that students who are gifted and have learning disabilities receive the intervention needed to help them achieve their full potential.
When educators first began describing children who showed evidence of having a learning disability LD yet also appeared to be gifted, many viewed this as contradictory. The stereotype that had prevailed since Terman's time was that gifted children score uniformly high on intelligence tests and perform well in school.
How could a child be considered gifted who has serious enough learning problems to be characterized as having a learning disability? Ina colloquium held at The Johns Hopkins University convened experts from the fields of both learning disabilities and giftedness to consider this issue.
At the time, interest in meeting the needs of gifted and talented students, as well as students with learning disabilities, was evident on many levels, but students who exhibited the characteristics of both exceptionalities had received scant notice.
The participants agreed that students who are gifted and also have learning disabilities do, in fact, exist but are often overlooked when students are assessed for either giftedness or learning disabilities.
In recent years, the concept of giftedness and learning disabilities occurring concomitantly in the same individual has become commonly accepted. Several books have been written on the subject, numerous articles have appeared in journals, and most educational conferences focusing on either learning disabilities or giftedness Learning english through social issue at least one presentation on the dual exceptionality.
We appear to have reached an understanding that high ability and learning problems can both be present in the same individual. Nonetheless, empirical research on the characteristics and needs of this population has been limited, and relatively few students with LD who are gifted are identified as such or given special services.
In this review, we examine some of the theoretical arguments, regulations, and educational practices that affect students with LD who are gifted.
Who are these students? Students who are gifted and also have learning disabilities are those who possess an outstanding gift or talent and are capable of high performance, but who also have a learning disability that makes some aspect of academic achievement difficult.
Some of these students are identified and their needs are met. This happens only rarely, however, unless a school specifically decides to identify and then serve these students. The majority of students who are gifted with learning disabilities "fall through the cracks" in the system.
The first group includes students who have been identified as gifted yet exhibit difficulties in school. Their learning disabilities usually remain unrecognized for most of their educational lives.
As school becomes more challenging, their academic difficulties may increase to the point where they are falling sufficiently behind peers that someone finally suspects a disability.
A second group includes students whose learning disabilities are severe enough that they have been identified as having learning disabilities but whose exceptional abilities have never been recognized or addressed.
It has been suggested that this may be a larger group of students than many people realize. If their potential remains unrecognized, it never becomes a cause for concern or the focus of their instructional program.
Perhaps the largest group of unserved students are those whose abilities and disabilities mask each other; these children sit in general classrooms, ineligible for services provided for students who are gifted or have learning disabilities, and are considered to have average abilities.
Because these students typically function at grade level, they are not seen as having problems or special needs, nor are they a priority for schools on tight budgets. Although these students appear to be functioning reasonably well, they are, unfortunately, performing well below their potential.
As course work becomes more demanding in later years, and without the help they need to accommodate their limitations, their academic difficulties usually increase to the point where a learning disability may be suspected, but rarely is their true potential recognized.
For all three of these subgroups, the social and emotional consequences of having exceptional abilities and learning disabilities, when one or both of the conditions is unrecognized, can be pervasive and quite debilitating, as well as difficult to address if appropriate diagnosis and programming never take place or are delayed until adolescence Baum et al.
With an increasing number of LD researchers questioning the relevance of a child's aptitude in determining intervention strategies cf. Siegel,even fewer students with high potential and learning disabilities will be recognized or fully served, resulting in a great waste of intellectual potential.
Definitions The literature is replete with references to individuals with extremely high abilities and talents who also have a specific learning disability e. Some researchers have even suggested that, at least for some individuals, the learning disability may be fundamentally associated with a "gift" e.
To most practitioners who work with individuals with disabilities, being gifted and also having learning disabilities does not appear to be an unfamiliar or especially problematic condition, at least in theory. Nonetheless, a number of thorny issues and debates make the understanding and identification of the condition difficult.
Controversy surrounds what is meant by the terms gifted and learning disabled. As Vaughn pointed out, "no two populations have suffered from more definitional problems than learning disabled and gifted" p.The Social Problem of Animal Neglect and Cruelty.
The Social Problem of Animal Cruelty and Neglect In a world whose population is over 6 billion and still rapidly growing, it seems nearly popular sport attended by all classes of the English people. While all the animals involved. To understand the link between learning problems and social difficulties, it helps to think about the cognitive process that has to occur in a successful social interaction.
A social interaction involves being presented with some new information or . The standards describe the content and skills for students in grades K - 12 for social and emotional learning.
Each standard includes five benchmark levels that describe what students should know and be able to do in early elementary (grades K - 3), late elementary (grades 4 - 5), middle/junior high (grades ), early high school (grades ), and late high school (grades ).
Lifelong learning is the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated" pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, as well as competitiveness and employability.
