For many, the terms learning disabilities and giftedness are at the opposite ends of a learning spectrum. This book profiles the student who is both gifted and learning disabled. Part one explores the unique characteristics of GLD students and offers a rationale for developing special programs. Part two focusses on ways to identify GLD students and describes a variety of programs that are specifically designed to attend to each student's talents. Teaching strategies are recommended to help GLD students recognise their weaknesses, develop a positive attitude about learning and maximise their intellectual and creative potential
