Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this literature review was to investigate a special group of students that are both gifted and learning disabled. Once the literature evidenced the existence of such a special population, a list of their characteristics was subsequently drawn from the literature review. In addition, specific identification procedures to nominate, screen, and select gifted learning-disabled students were compiled and examined. Based on the review of the literature, it was concluded that educators possess a very limited or stereotypical knowledge about gifted learning-disabled children and youth that may keep these children from being identified for participation in appropriate school programs.
