Special learning needs, cultural expectations, and issues of poverty greatly complicate the identification of gifts and talents among at-risk students. And traditional gifted programs fail to fully address the unique needs of these special populations. Twice-Exceptional and Special Populations of Gifted Students offers critical insights and promising practices designed to prevent these high-potential, at-risk students from falling through the cracks.

Key features include:

  • Susan Baum's thorough synopsis of the critical issues affecting twice-exceptional students and other special gifted populations
  • Strategies for identifying giftedness masked by gender, cultural, economic, and/or behavioural issues
  • Examples of appropriate programming options for a variety of high-potential, at-risk populations

Applying the modifications, accommodations, and additional services suggested in this ready-reference, educators will at last be able to adequately nurture the academic, social, and emotional development of twice-exceptional and other special populations of gifted students.
