AT for the Gifted Student with Learning Differences

What do Albert Einstein, Walt Disney and Thomas Edison have in common?

They all were identified as having learning disabilities despite brilliant intellect. They are not alone. There are students in our schools, today, who meet the criteria of very superior intellectual capabilities combined with learning differences.

This month's newsletter from the Family Center on Technology and Disability addresses the issue of assistive technology as a key compensatory tool for the twice exceptional child . Excellent resource for understanding how to meet the unique educational needs of GT/LD students. Check it out here.

Here's another helpful article in the same newsletter on AT and the IEP.
