The Inconvenient Student, by Dr. Michael Postma, tackles the problem of identifying gifted kids who have dyslexia, dysgraphia, sensory processing disorder, auditory and visual processing disorders, ADD, autism or Asperger's, ODD, OCD, anxiety, and depression.

This 12 contact hour online book study will require independent reading of the text. Participants will be responsible for completing chapter reflections through a non-fiction book response (template to be provided). Additionally participants will review an assigned case study for a twice-exceptional student in which they will identify intellectual ability and areas of weakness in order to create a comprehensive action plan.
