The document presents Module 7, gifted/talented students among the disabled, of the Star Power modules developed for school personnel who have an interest in or a need to explore the area of gifted and talented education. It is explained in an introductory section that the modules can be used for independent study, for small group interaction, or for a large group inservice program. The goals of this module are to discover positive contributions which gifted/talented students who are disabled may make and to encourage development of potential and of positive self concepts while these students explore areas of high potential. Sections include the following: enabling objectives (such as devise appropriate ways to encourage disabled students to develop or improve their self concepts); rationale to establish a frame of reference; preassessment tests and evaluation; instructions for scoring the preassessment instrument; activities to develop self concept, to motivate with art, photography, drama, filmmaking, written communication, and to encourage kinesthetic and auditory learners; and postassessment procedures.
