Intellectually Gifted Kids And Learning Disabilities

Introducing a new kind of post for the Cinder Cone: one that shares the most-viewed link originally appearing on Climbing the Cinder Cone’s Facebook page in the previous month. This way, anyone who doesn’t see the links on Facebook will still get to read the best relevant articles I could find.

The most-viewed link from April 2015 was an article in Science 2.0 that discusses gifted kids with learning disabilities. It says that 14% of gifted kids may have a learning disability, compared with 4% of the general population. The educational system is NOT set up to accommodate, or even recognize, these “GLD” students. Frustration, confusion, and lost opportunities are among the results.
