About F.A.C.E. : A Conceptual Framework to Recruit and Retain African American Males with Dual Exceptionalities

Friday, November 10
4:15 PM - 4:45 PM
Location: 218 B

African American males are underrepresented in high-ability groups and academic programs at all educational levels. When an African American male has dual exceptionalities, the education received may not be conducive to his needs, which may lead to the disintegration of his gifts and talents. This session will discuss factors that affect the identification of African American males with dual exceptionalities, more specifically, ADHD and giftedness. A conceptual framework developed using the acronym F.A.C.E. will be shared and recommendations will be provided for those who teach African American males with dual exceptionalities.
