Authors

  • Paola Damiani

Abstract

The article examines some meanings and impacts on the topic of the “talents”
in the school, starting from the meaning of the curriculum’s drafting
for the talents in the light of the new paradigms (neurodevelopment and
learning).
The article also outlines a research-action proposal for the inclusion of a
student with a “High-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder”, characterized
by some areas of “genius”, in a high-school context. This particular functioning
of the student can be categorized both as Special Education Need
and as “Gifted”.
