Gifted with Learning Disabilities
Students who are gifted and also have learning disabilities are those who possess an outstanding gift or talent and are capable of high performance, but who also have a learning disability that makes some aspect of academic achievement difficult. Some of these students are identified and their needs are met. This happens only rarely, however, unless a school specifically decides to identify and then serve these students. The majority of students who are gifted with learning disabilities “fall through the cracks” in the system.1
Edublox provides multisensory cognitive enhancement programs offering hope for gifted children with learning disabilities. Edublox programs aim at developing foundational learning skills such as concentration, perception, memory, and logical thought, and improving performance in reading, spelling, writing and math. Our programs are effective for a variety of learning difficulties including dyslexia and dysgraphia.
