Individuals with Exceptionalities...
Picture taken from here
Sorry, I was down with some head-cold or some mild-grade flu for a while, and had to write my finals with it, so my blog had to take a back seat.
Anyway, I have a question...
When you hear the phrase 'individual with exceptionalities', what comes to your mind?
Someone with special needs? Someone who is gifted? Who is talented? Someone with retardation or disabilities? Someone with a chronic medical condition needing special care/adaptation?
To me, the term has always encompassed all the above and more, but I've come across many people who only associate 'individuals with exceptionalities' as those who are gifted.
What do you think?
*Note: I don't want to know what the textbook says about exceptionalities encompasses because I know what it says. I want to know what you personally feel.
