This presentation seeks to explore the most effective teaching methods for allowing twice-exceptional learners to reach their full academic potential. What exactly is a twice-exceptional student? Twice-exceptional students, or “2e” students, have both gifted ability and disability. They have many strengths in one subject area, but learning or developmental difficulties in another. Examples could be children with autism, ADHD, dyslexia or any other condition that impairs learning. Despite the high number of children who could be considered 2e, school systems often struggle to properly identify and support these students. Through educational strategies such as team based instruction and an integrated curriculum, teacher’s can more easily accommodate the unique learning needs of every twice-exceptional learner.
