Educational planning for gifted children who have special educational needs must address the gifted and special needs sides of these unique children.
Because giftedness can mask special needs — and special needs can hide giftedness — school personnel often label twice-exceptional kids as “lazy” and “unmotivated.”
Giftedness does not open the door to special education services and an IEP.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find articles, advocacy advice, resources, book recommendations, and free publications about making good educational decisions for a twice-exceptional child.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.
