Twice Exceptional Learners (2E) are students who are both advanced and challenged with a learning difference. These advanced learners may be affected by ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Emotional Behavioral Disorders, or any other learning difference that may prompt an I.E.P. 2E students require specific interventions to achieve success and positive experiences in school. This course will explore the social-emotional, academic, and environmental interventions from research-supported practices. Teachers will learn tips and tools for supporting these complex learners in the mixed-ability classroom.
