  • GIFTED AND TWICE EXCEPTIONAL STUDENTS

    Twice exceptional (2e) students have above average or gifted intelligence but also have special educational needs. Because these students’ special needs can be disguised by their abilities, they can be labeled “lazy” or “unmotivated.” 2e students are some of the most difficult students to advocate for, because they often perform at an average level or above. We have encountered situations where schools have refused to allow qualified students with learning disabilities (who may need accommodations) to enroll in accelerated or AP courses. This is against the law, and we will fight for our 2e clients to get the education they deserve.
