Do you have a twice exceptional child and find it difficult to navigate the education system to best support your child’s needs? It is difficult for educators to understand the interconnectedness of an individuals strengths and weaknesses and how this leads to inconsistency in performance resulting in the need for both challenges and support. Let’s discuss the characteristics of twice exceptional children or gifted children with some type of disability, how to advocate for them and how to support them. Support comes in the form of highlighting strengths and accommodating for weaknesses. Advocacy comes from knowing what resources you have, what your rights are, what the research says and how you come up with a response to any barriers to providing your child with the quality education they deserve.
