Attention: Parents of 2E Children

Please take a minute to read this explanation of Twice Exceptional (2E) children:

Gifted: High Abstract Reasoning

Learning Disability: There's many ways to define a learning disability--IQ/Achievement Discrepency (Autism falls here), Speech & Language, Mental Health Disorders, Behavioral & Developmental Disabilities, Other Health Imapairments (ADD falls here)

Twice Exceptional: Gifted and Learning Disabled Child
In a nutshell, a 2E child is one who is gifted and has a learning disability. If you know any parents who have a child with this diagnosis, and who are struggling, please send them to my friend's site at: http://www.coolestchildren.com/. Robyn is the mom of a 2E child, and she desires to create a community of parents who can help each other. Currently, there is nothing out there for parents of these children.

Thanks for reading!

  2. Actually, there is something out there. After raising two 2e children and struggling to find information and get help, my husband and I created a publication for parents and teachers to help them understand twice exceptionality, 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter. We've been publishing for 5 years and also have a website and send out a free monthly email briefing on 2e topics. We're working to spread the word, and little by little the awareness of who these children are and what they need to thrive is growing.
