    This updated third edition provides a comprehensive look at the complex world of students with remarkable gifts, talents, and interests, who simultaneously face learning, attention, or social challeges from LD, ADHS, ASD, and other disorders. Through case studies and years of research, the authors present a rational for using a strength-based, talent-focused approach to meeting the needs of this special population. From a throrough descripiton of twice-exceptionality and the unique learning patterns of these students, to strategies for identification, comprehensive programming, talent development, and instructional strategies, this book explores the distinguishing strengths (yellows) and complex challenges (blues) that these students face. In painting, green is a mix of yellow and blue--and, because of their individual characteristics, twice-exceptional students come in a remarkable range of greens. -- Provided by publisher.
