International Journal of Gifted Education: The Challenge of Identifying Gifted/Learning Disabled Students

By Linda A. Krochak and Thomas G Ryan

“The following contemporary review illuminates several of the “best methods” to accurately identify gifted/learning disabled (GLD) students. Explanations which clearly define what it means to be gifted, learning disabled (LD) and gifted/learning disabled (GLD) are included and incorporated into a typology of three identities of GLD students. Recommended and currently utilized methods of GLD identification and assessment are detailed and various controversies surrounding these modes are explored. Current voids within the GLD research are described and present approaches and programming for GLD students is distilled. The future for this “twice exceptional” student is proposed and critical understandings are realized.”
