Every Gift Has a Story: Exploring Twice-Exceptional Issues

A "twice-exceptional learner" is a student who performs at - or shows the potential for performing at - a remarkably high level of accomplishment. He or she might exhibit high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area; possess an unusual capacity for leadership; or excel in a specific academic field. However, with these gifts and talents, the student also demonstrates evidence of one or more disabilities as defined by federal and state eligibility criteria such as: learning disabilities, speech and language disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, physical and sensory disabilities, traumatic brain injury, autism spectrum disorder, or other health impairments such as ADHD.

Twice-exceptional students are often misdiagnosed or misidentified and critically underserved.

In this workshop, we will use a case studies approach to examine a range of diverse exceptionalities and potentialities and to develop strategies to help unique bright students with their learning and socialization.
