The Gifted/Learning Disabled.
Jacobson, Vivienne
Identification and programing are central topics in the discussion of gifted learning disabled (LD) students. Characteristics of gifted LD students are described, including talent in the creative arts. Reasons for overlooking this population are noted, including their ability to compensate for their problems. The degree of giftedness and of learning disability, together with the type of LD and the student's personality characteristics are considered. Problems in serving gifted LD students in the resource room are described, including negative effects on the student's self concept. Suggestions are offered for identification, curriculum, the individualized education program, minimalized failure, student-teacher relationships, and the role of the parents. (CL)
