Capstone Project Title
Jana Lo Bello & Patty Born Selly
The research question addressed by this project is How can educators best support and challenge twice exceptional students within the general education classroom? The purpose of exploring this topic was to help identify strategies for classroom teachers to implement to help their gifted and talented students with learning disabilities feel successful in school. The project reviews studies and articles written by experts in gifted and talented studies as well as experts in learning disabilities in order to provide a better understanding of what it means to be twice exceptional and help provide educators with a guide for how to serve these students. The research is centered around identifying twice exceptional students, reviewing best practices for students with learning disabilities, advocating for students that are twice exceptional, and understanding the viewpoint of these students and their parents. In order to help educators, the capstone project created is a website containing information about twice exceptional students, strategies for educators to use with these students, and a forum for educators to discuss their thoughts and ideas around this topic.
