CONTENT:
Uniquely Gifted is a collection of resources for families with gifted/special needs children and the professionals who work with them.

AESTHETICS:
The site is simple, with few graphics.
ORGANIZATION:
Like its design, this site's organization is simple. The user's guide, table of contents, and search feature make finding the information you seek quite easy.

REVIEW:
This Web site offers a wealth of resources for anyone involved with exceptional children. Although designed for and specifically targeted at those who work with "twice-exceptional" kids (children who are both gifted and learning disabled in some way), the site offers valuable information on all kinds of special needs. There is an area designed especially for parents that lists resources for home schooling, camps, residential placements, and college. The site also has a list of resources dealing with many specific areas of need -- AD(H)D, Tourette's syndrome, dyslexia, vision problems, conduct disorders, and many more. Other areas focus on assessment information, treatment options, and assistive technology. Also available is a section with stories and personal experiences of people who have dealt with the problems discussed on the site. In addition, Uniquely Gifted lists online support groups such as e-mail lists and bulletin boards that may be helpful to adults and children alike. A tremendous collection of well-organized resources, this site is recommended for teachers, parents, kids, and anyone involved with exceptional children.
