What are a list of specific programs that one can get to help the gifted and troubled in school?
I want to help people like me who fell through the cracks. When I was in grade school I scored very high in I.Q., but I was disruptive in class, I would have benefited from being given special education for gifted and troubled. My sister was skipped up a grade and I would like to have the same deal. except I was a class clown. What can I do to make sure that kids don’t fall in the cracks again… I’m thinking educational psychology, but I’m interested in helping gifted students belong, because I can relate. I don’t want to pursue a teaching credential because their is a glut of teachers who don’t have jobs in my home province of Alberta. Maybe I could be tempted to be a special education teacher.
