Episode Description

The academic potential of twice exceptional students is considerable — strong memories, large vocabularies, unusual emotional depth, divergent thinking — but coexisting conditions like ADHD can complicate learning and teaching. In class, 2e children may perform above average in some areas and below average in others. The strengths and challenges can be unpredictable, making life feel chaotic and overwhelming for some students.

Identifying students who are twice exceptional, and understanding the impact of their unique hurdles, is the first step to coping with stress and avoiding burnout.

In this webinar, 2e families and teachers will learn:

  • How to work with time, structuring weeks, days, and minutes to make it less abstract to students
  • How to create systems that support your child’s success
  • How to recognize early signs of stress and prevent burnout
