We’ll examine what it really means to have twice exceptional child, and endeavor to understand our role as parents to support growth academically, socially, and emotionally.
Who are the children we call twice exceptional? How does the dual diagnosis impact their identities and result in profound complexities? For too long, bright students with academic, behavioral, or social challenges are subjected to remediation and other strategies designed to “fix” them. However, studies have shown that attention should be on developing what these 2e students can do by using a strength-based, talent focused approach. In short, we need to create and advocate for 2e friendly environments at home and school where these students feel safe to learn. In such an environment, students find the courage to overcome their challenges and engage in learning with confidence and enthusiasm. Sounds great – but how? Let’s delve into what I call the Suite of Tools process!
Susan Baum, Ph.D. is the Director of the 2e Center for Research and Professional Development at Bridges Academy and Provost of the Bridges Graduate School for Cognitive Diversity in Education.
