Social Needs of Twice-Exceptional Learners

"Normal social development is necessary for personal success. Gifted children can feel isolated when their asynchronous development causes them to be out of sync with age peers" (Trail, 2011). When students lack the social skills needed to build friendships and develop relationships, they experience feelings of isolation and can become victims of peer bullying. These students need to learn the social skills necessary for making friends and interacting with peers.
