Learning - Styles, Differences, Disabilities & Gifted

I share the following links so you can read, learn & make up your own mind about causes, affects, and best approaches.  I do not endorse any particular site, or any particular theory regarding the cause or reason for learning differences.  I do not endorse any particluar eduational or theraputic approach.  I have found my own way through this maze of information to a satisfying attitude and approach for my particular, and two very different, learners.
 
Sometimes the topics for learning differences and gifted cross over and I am uncertain where to file the resource so I just do my best to pick the most applicable column. 
 
Also note that, like a bird collecting objects to build its home, I've collected links that, for the most part, were of some use to me as I built an educational path for my boys.  My library thus does not include links for certain learning differences such as dyslexia, etc.  It might be considered a selfish collection except that I have little experience with learning differences/gifts aside from the ones I've experienced personally.
 
I can't say I've used every Internet link to its full potential.  If I've listed a book, though, then that means I read it and found something compelling or useful within its pages.  
 
Here is an article about whether, why & how to IQ test and other types of assessment:   http://www.hoagiesgifted.org/why_test.htm
