As leaders in artwork and monumental storage and transportation, you will feel assured that your invaluable works of art are in skilled hands.ICT can play a vital role in meeting the individual needs of gifted students in the classroom.Their special needs can be met through informed use of software.They often need more time to complete tests and writing assignments; require assistive technology such as audio books and the ability to keyboard; need assistance in organizing and managing their workload; and may need help transitioning throughout their day and navigating the increasingly complex social world.Just as kids with these challenges need IEPs (Individual Education Plans) and 504 Plans (classroom accommodations), 2e kids need the above accommodations to work and perform to their potential.
