Students who have special needs and have high levels of ability are called Twice-exceptional or 2e. They are very often misunderstood because either they are seen only as special needs students, or their high level of ability masks their special needs. This webinar will help educators and parents understand this phenomenon better and find out what to do about it with their students in school and children at home.
