Meeting the needs of all students in today’s educational climate has become increasingly challenging for educators. The challenge is particularly true for a group of students whose needs require program options that include both special and gifted education. This workshop will:

  • Utilize the new National Twice-Exceptional Community of Practice definition to explore characteristics, programming options, and strategies to support learning for this unique population of learners
  • Discuss collaborative approaches to building support
  • Reflect on what can be learned from twice-exceptional students and how in meeting their needs, we might better serve all students

*EILA credit will be available for educators
