The field associated with educating students with gifts and talents has grappled for years with issues associated with locating and appropriately serving diverse students. As our schools have become more diverse, educators have struggled to effectively deal with the diversity of student backgrounds. Consequently, diversity among the gifted child population has been determined to be a much-needed area of research. "Critical Readings on Diversity and Gifted Students" is a two-volume compilation of 66 articles that originally appeared in the "Journal for the Education of the Gifted." Volume 2 features 19 articles focused on the impact of gender on gifted students and gifted students with one or more disabilities. This volume shares articles on gifted females, gifted males, gender differences, savants, and twice-exceptional students, including gifted students with learning disabilities and ADHD.
