Giftedness and Twice Exceptionality
This workshop discusses two topics that often intersect as well – giftedness and twice-exceptionality (2e). Learn how to identify giftedness in a student as well as students who may be gifted along with having a learning disability. Discover how to work with gifted and 2e students using effective cognitive and non-cognitive strategies. We will unpack topics such as communication, underachievement, self-management, perfectionism, peer relations, and effective interventions.
