Gifted (2e)

2e: Exceptionally Gifted, Exceptionally Challenged

Twice exceptional children, referred to as 2e, are gifted in one or more areas, while simultaneously challenged with a learning disability or disorder such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), sensory processing disorder (SPD), or anxiety.

2e children are often:

  • Preoccupied with a sense of justice

  • Highly curious and want answers, not fluff

  • Highly sensitive with intense feelings and reactions

  • Extremely curious and experimental

  • Vivid imagination and creative play

  • Excellent vocabulary with strong communication skills

  • Confident and mature with adults

  • Organizes complex ideas and problem solving skills

Unfortunately, 2e children are often overlooked as their gifts are "canceled out" by their challenges. Recognizing a child's strengths and weaknesses will allow you to help them learn to unlock their full potential!
