How Can Such a Smart Kid Not Get It? Finding the Right Fit for Twice-Exceptional Students in Our Schools
Yssel, Nina; Prater, Mike; Smith, Deb
Gifted Child Today, v33 n1 p54-61 Win 2010
During the past 6 years, the authors have worked and interacted with twice-exceptional middle school students as well as with their parents at an annual residential summer camp. Through surveys and interviews with the parents and their children, the difficulties that twice-exceptional students encounter at school emerged. Furthermore, parents' perceptions of the impact of a successful learning experience during one week of camp have been noteworthy. The purpose of this article is to present parents' perceptions of educational and social-emotional difficulties their twice exceptional children experience. The snapshots of twice-exceptional middle school students are interspersed with views and research findings from existing literature. Finally, a few successful strategies are described, and recommendations for the classroom are included.
