Category Archives: Twice-exceptional
Twice-exceptional learners, an oft misunderstood group, are those students with exceptional high abilities as well as exceptional challenges. These kids exhibit high intellectual levels while also having significant special needs such as ADD/ADHD; Asperger’s or ASD; sensory issues; ODD; or SPD (specific learning disability). Representing up to 20% (Oak Foundation) of students, twice-exceptional learners are too often overlooked in academic settings (affecting educational opportunities) and face misdiagnosis leading to inappropriate interventions.
