What is Twice Exceptional?

Twice Exceptional (2E) is defined more easily when we consider the following:

  1. Gifted: High Abstract Reasoning
  2. Learning Disability: There's many ways to define a learning disability--IQ/Achievement Discrepency (Autism falls here), Speech & Language, Mental Health Disorders, Behavioral & Developmental Disabilities, Other Health Imapairments (ADD falls here)
  3. Twice Exceptional: Gifted and Learning Disabled Child

In a nutshell, a 2E child is one who is gifted and has a learning disability.
