ABSTRACT
The article presents a list of key resources (both print and Web-based) for parents, teachers, and students who want to learn more about learning disorders and gifted individuals who have learning disabilities. R.D. Davis and E.M. Braun in their book "Gift of Dyslexia: Why Some of the Smartest People Can't Read and How They Can Learn," reveals how dyslexia may be linked to uncommonly high levels of intelligence, creativity, and imagination and outlines a plan anyone can use to help themselves or others conquer this disability. The book "Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual-Spatial Learner," by L.K. Silverman provides useful information for parents and educators who wish to learn about the complexities of brilliant, but academically challenged, minds.
