Gifted students who have academic learning difficulties: analytic sequential processing problems ? Some secondary gifted students display the dual exceptionalities of giftedness and a specific learning disability in literacy and/or mathematics that leads to chronic underachievement in academic studies. This paper describes how these students have analytic sequential processing difficulties that restrict their ability to use conventional assessment tasts to show their gifted understanding. It also shows how they can be assisted by directed strategy teaching. A version is published in W. Vialle (Ed.), Dual Exceptionality (pp 26-38). Wollongong, NSW: AAEGT Ltd.
