Willard-Holt, Colleen
Exceptional Children, v65 n1 p37-50 Fall 1998
Using a qualitative cross-case methodology over three years, this study investigated how two gifted students with cerebral palsy and no speech exhibited their cognitive abilities. Findings indicated such traits as maturity, goal orientation, persistence/determination, patience, recognition of limitations, desire for independence from aids and devices, and use of intellect to circumvent the disability.
