  • Don't discount good support for disabled learning just because you have reasonable expectations of high achievement.

    My son is doubly identified, both as gifted and as learning disabled. There was testing to confirm the disabled classification a couple of years after he had been classified into the gifted program. The test, while he was in grade 5, rated his reading and understanding capability at a university level, while his writing was at a grade 2 level. (The double identification is somewhat rare, but the magnitude of the discrepancy between his reading and writing was the conclusive element.) The additional support he receives because of the disabled classification has helped him immensely in working within and around his limitations, while he continues to thrive in the gifted program.
