Twice Gifted

Twice gifted is a term used for discussing and labeling gifted and talented children with special needs. Now, I'm not much for discussing and labeling - especially since usually I'm the one who is being discussed and labeled around my house (and these discussions are about me not with me, but more on that later).

Most of the gifted and talented kids I know have other issues (like parents, ha!). Twice gifted kids not only have issues, they have actual learning disabilities and other special needs. By special needs, I mean diagnoses such as autism, Asperger's, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, etc.

You think this is unlikely?
