Abstract
This article explores the promises and pitfalls of a response to intervention (RTI) model for gifted students with learning disabilities (LD). Although much has been written about the potential benefits and challenges of RTI for identifying and serving students with LD, the ramifications of this model for gifted students with LD have not been fully explored. This article addresses this void by examining the potential of RTI to meet the unique learning needs of gifted students with LD. Inherent challenges this model may pose are discussed and suggestions for practitioners are provided.
