Tips for Parents: Meeting the Needs of the Twice-Exceptional Children
Many highly gifted children have other special needs -- learning disabilities, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, sensory integration disorder, etc. This can be very challenging, both in terms of identification (since gifted children can often use the giftedness to partially compensate for the special need, making it both giftedness and special needs harder to discover), and in terms of finding ways to address both the gifted and special needs sides of the child adequately. This online seminar focused on a few topics that are useful for anyone trying to navigate the maze of educating a twice-exceptional child.

 

Equity in Gifted/Talented Education: Twice-Exceptional Students and G/T Services
Families play a critical role in the lives of their twice-exceptional children. School can be very challenging for twice-exceptional children and they need a home environment that is accepting and supportive. Above all, do not let the problems of school destroy family relationships. Focus on helping your child to develop his/her potential rather than trying to fix them.
