Al-Hroub, Anies; Whitebread, David – Roeper Review, 2019
The purpose of this research was to investigate the utility of dynamic assessment (DA) in identifying a group of "twice-exceptional students" who exhibited mathematical giftedness and specific learning disabilities (MG/LDs). A quantitative method was applied by a multidisciplinary team to identify 30 students (16 girls and 14 boys) in…
