Twice Exceptional & Gifted
A twice exceptional (2e) student is considered to have an intellectually above average IQ and is diagnosed with one or more disabilities. Common disabilities associated with giftedness are varied; however, some common ones include: dyslexia, sensory processing disorder, OCD, ADD/ADHD, visual or auditory processing disorder and/or any disability that can affect regular learning in the classroom. This is such an individual condition that it is very much a case by case basis of what types of instruction can help the student academically as well as emotionally. I have experience with dyslexic 2e students and have found that multisensory learning paired with psychological monitoring for emotional issues has been very helpful.
