Gifted and Talented and Learning Disabled.
Miller, Phyllis, Ed.
Mensa Research Journal, n44 Sum 2000
This issue of a research journal on gifted education explores issues surrounding gifted children who also have learning disabilities. Specific articles include: (1) "Notes, Quotes, and Anecdotes" (Francis Cartier); (2) "Gifted Children with Learning Disabilities: A Review of the Issues" (Linda E. Brody and Carol J. Mills), which examines current policies and practices with regard to defining, identifying, and educating gifted children with learning disabilities, and offers recommendations to ensure that these students receive the intervention needed to help them achieve their full potential; (3) "Gifted, LD, and Gifted/LD Children's Understanding of Temporal Sequencing on Television" (Robert Abelman), which found that gifted and gifted children with learning disabilities demonstrated a higher level of comprehension of the basic realistic mode of presentation than typical children and children with learning disabilities; (4) "Characteristics of 12th-Grade Students Seriously Deficient in Spatial Ability" (Carol L. Gohm, Lloyd G. Humphreys, and Grace Yao), which found that students who were unexpectedly low in spatial ability performed relatively well on cognitive tests that required answering unambiguous questions by retrieving information directly from long term memory, whereas they scored relatively poorly on tests requiring inference and perception of relations among novel stimuli; and (5) "Family Therapy with Intellectually and Creatively Gifted Children" (Sidney M. Moon and Alex S. Hall). (Articles include references.) (CR)
