Some gifted children have learning difficulties. Estimates of how many vary greatly, anywhere from 2 to 5 percent of the population to as high as 20 percent of all gifted children. One common term for these children is GT/LD – gifted and talented/learning disabled. Another – one that encompasses a broader range of problems that affect learning – is twice-exceptional, or 2e. This term refers to the fact that some gifted children are exceptional both because of their strengths and because of their limitations. Coupled with high intelligence, these children also may have one or more learning disabilities, attention deficit, emotional or behavior problems, or other types of learning difficulties.
