Gifted and talented ELLs and bilingual/dual language students have been overrepresented and underrepresented in special education programs. Teachers are able to identify and meet the needs of gifted and talented ELLs and bilingual/dual language students when they are aware of the characteristics of these students. Teachers are prepared to meet the needs of ELLs and bilingual/dual language students with an ID when they are informed of best practices.
