Computer-Assisted Technology for the Twice Exceptional
Rizza, Mary
Understanding Our Gifted, v18 n4 p11-15 Sum 2006
Technology helps students develop coping strategies to deal with various learning differences. Assistive technology is a common intervention provided to students with disabilities and generally varies depending on student need. Within gifted education, the use of computers and technology is concentrated on curricular applications and activities that extend learning experiences of the students. The use of technology as applied to twice exceptional learners (students who are both gifted and have disabilities) should combine both purposes by enhancing remedial curriculum and also enriching aspects of learning. Twice exceptional students can benefit most from technology infusion that promotes skill building within stimulating and engaging environments, thus meeting their needs for challenge, remediation, or physical assistance. This article discusses the specific types of assistive technology that can help twice exceptional students. (Contains 16 resources.)
