Conducted November 18,, 2009

ABOUT THE WEBINAR: Students who have gifts and simultaneously have learning difficulties or disabilities are in every classroom. It is crucial for both these students and for our society that we identify these students and provide them with appropriately challenging instruction and the skills, strategies and accommodations that remove the obstacles presented by their disabilities or difficulties.

This presentation provides advocates with information and strategies that will allow them to effectively work with school teams and parents to identify these students. This presentation also provides advocates with the knowledge of the best practices for the education of these students, so that they can help school teams and parents to formulate appropriate individualized plans for each student.
