Title: Career decision making in learning disabled/ gifted high school students
Author: Belknap, Kristin
Abstract: Little is known about the career decision-making difficulties faced by high school students who are both gifted and learning disabled. Learning disabled/ gifted individuals have a learning disability in one or more areas, yet demonstrate extraordinary strengths in other areas. This study examined how this unique set of abilities affects an individual's career decision-making process, using the Career Decision Scale (Osipow, 1980) and the Career Thoughts Inventory (Sampson, Peterson, Lenz, Reardon, Saunders, 1994). Eleven high school students participated in the study. There was a high degree of variability among the scores, most likely due to the unique characteristics of each learning disabled/ gifted individual. Overall, no area was rated significantly higher or more discrepant than the normative sample.
