ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the emotional and social needs of twice-exceptional students. Students who are both gifted and have learning disabilities exhibit superior intellectual ability as well as a significant discrepancy between their level of performance in a particular area, such as reading, mathematics, spelling, or written language, as compared with their performance in areas of strength. School can be very frustrating for a twice-exceptional student. Because of their ongoing conflict between intellectual strengths and academic struggles, many students who are gifted and have learning disabilities develop low self-concepts alter starting school. These students have also been shown to have difficulty with social skills and often report feelings of not fitting in with their peers.
