What do you do when your school doesn't support gifted students who are struggling? Some schools have programs to support gifted high achievers but do little to support gifted strugglers.
Many parents write us to say that schools are denying IEPs and 504 plans on the basis of high test scores or good grades. Their children are struggling because their "gift" seems to get in the way of receiving the help they need.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find a new page at Wrightslaw about Twice Exceptional Children that includes articles, resources, book recommendations,
free publications, and a short list of information and support groups.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
