Some kids, including gifted students, have difficulties in school. Gifted students with learning disabilities may continuously struggle with certain areas of instruction, but never receive identification of or accommodation for their difficulties, because their gifts mask their disabilities. Gifted students with learning disabilities need unique instruction and a practical use of accommodations to succeed in school. It is important for educators to familiarize themselves with the definitions and characteristics of various learning disabilities and learn the strategies they can use in the classroom to help gifted/learning-disabled students succeed. In this book, Kevin Besnoy takes an in-depth look at the various learning disabilities and difficulties some gifted students face, provides practical tips for accommodating and planning instruction for those students, and gives an overview of federal law related to this population. This is one of the books in Prufrock Press' popular Practical Strategies Series in Gifted Education. This series offers a unique collection of tightly focused books that provide a concise, practical introduction to important topics concerning the education of gifted children. The guides offer a perfect beginner's introduction to key information about gifted and talented education.

In an educational system founded on rigid standards and categories, students who demonstrate a very specific manifestation of intelligence flourish, while those who deviate tend to fall between the cracks. Too often, talents and interests that do not align with classroom conventions are left unrecognized and unexplored in children with extraordinary potential but little opportunity. For twice-exceptional (2e) children, who have extraordinary strengths coupled with learning difficulties, the problem is compounded by the paradoxical nature of their intellect and an unbending system, ill-equipped to cater to their unique learning needs. Twice Exceptional: Supporting and Educating Bright and Creative Students with Learning Difficulties provides cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to creating an environment where twice-exceptional students can thrive. Viewing the 2e student as neither exclusively disabled nor exclusively gifted, but, rather, as a dynamic interaction of both, leading experts offer holistic insight into identification, social-emotional development, advocacy, and support for 2e students. With chapters focusing on special populations (including autism, dyslexia, and ADHD) as well as the intersection of race and 2e, this book highlights practical recommendations for school and social contexts. In expounding the unique challenges faced by the 2e population, Twice Exceptional makes a case for greater flexibility in our approach to education and a wider notion of what it means to be academically successful.

2e: Twice Exceptional examines the concept of “twice exceptionality” - gifted or highly gifted children with learning disabilities and/or differences. Some have trouble interpreting social cues and processing visual and auditory information. Others have difficulty with time management and organization; they may finish their homework but routinely forget to turn it in. Some have been labeled as “underachievers” and “lazy”, accused of just not trying hard enough.. Yet they can retain huge volumes of arcane information in subjects that interest them, solve complex mathematical problems or master an unfamiliar musical instrument with ease. They have vexed their parents and are often considered “at risk” by traditional school systems. They are our next-gen geniuses, mavericks and dreamers - Malcolm Gladwell's budding “outliers.”. While exploring the concept of twice-exceptionality and the development of creative educational solutions designed specifically to engage these unique students, 2e: Twice Exceptional focuses on several middle school and high school students at Bridges Academy in Studio City, California. Begun in 1994 as an afterschool tutorial program to help gifted students who were nevertheless failing high school, Bridges Academy has grown to become one of the first schools in America dedicated solely to the education of 2e students. Bridges has attracted the interest of the international educational community for its inspired approach in looking “outside the box” to find strength-based teaching methods for these students.. The documentary features interviews with students, parents, teachers and psychologists.. 2015 Richmond International Film Festival - “Best Documentary Feature”. 2015 Silver Springs International Film Festival - “Audience Choice - Best Feature”. 2015 Eugene International Film Festival - “Best Social Benefit Documentary”

America's public schools strive to educate all children in an inclusive environment. Consequently, children of varying skill levels learn together in today's classrooms. While there are individual children with distinctive or exceptional learning needs in every classroom, some youngsters show a pattern of extreme strengths combined with areas of significant difficulty. These yongsters are commonly referred to as twice-exceptional; students who have outstanding gifts or talents and are capable of high performance, but who also have a disability that affects some aspect of learning (Brody & Mills, 1997). This guide will: Address identification considerations for students who are twice-exceptional; Provide common characteristics of students who are both gifted and disabled; Explain obstacles and learning difficulties faced by these students; Identify the roles and responsibilities of school districts for ensuring appropriate programming for twice-exceptional students; Identify the roles and responsibilities of teachers for addressing the needs of twice-exceptional students; Suggest some adaptations, accomodations, and available resources.

Gifted and talented students with coexisting learning disabilities, also known as twice-exceptional, are increasingly recognized in U.S. schools. This increasing awareness needs to be met with improved legal protection, better methods for identification and optimized teaching strategies for the unique needs of these students. For this thesis, literature from a range of disciplines including education, cognitive science, and psychology regarding twice-exceptionality is examined, with a specific focus on gifted students with language-based learning disabilities like dyslexia, along with commonly comorbid factors such as ADHD and anxiety. The challenges of these students are also modeled using human centered design tools. Personas of archetypal twice-exceptional students are presented to create empathy for them and awareness of their unmet needs. Design frameworks are examined that aim to improve education universally for all students. Research strongly suggests that twice-exceptional students are under-identified and underserved in our schools and that comprehensive, individualized teaching strategies are necessary in order for them to reach their full potential. Teaching methods are outlined that simultaneously highlight strengths and accommodate the challenges of this important group of gifted learners.

Although the chronicles of my voyage only spanned grades K-12, it had taken more than 2 years from the conception of the book idea to bringing it to fruition. By sharing my journey with everyone, I hope my humble effort can shed some light on other twice exceptional students. Even though this book chronicled my experience as a 2e student, a good portion of it also would help those with Echolalia, Asperger's Syndrome, Einstein Syndrome, social/communication disorder or are extremely gifted.If this book had helped just one soul, it would be well worth the two plus years in bringing it to life.
