Many gifted characteristics overlap the symptoms of attention deficity-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The potential for the misdiagnosis of giftedness as ADHD exists, but so does the potential for a dual diagnosis of giftedness and ADHD. A decade after the misdiagnosis of giftedness as ADHD was first investigated we examine lessons learned…

Lovett, Benjamin J. – Roeper Review, 2013
Researchers and advocates who argue for increased recognition of gifted students with learning disabilities (G/LD students) often frame their arguments in terms of the need to increase the diversity and inclusiveness of gifted education.

Sternberg, Robert J. – Roeper Review, 2007
Different cultures have different conceptions of what it means to be gifted.

Such identification is inadequate and fails to do justice to the richness of the world's cultures. It also misses children who are…
