Strategies for Supporting Twice Exceptional Students

Webinar Length (Hours):



Lori Benson Adams, MEd


Strategies for Supporting Twice Exceptional Students

Approximately 360,000 children in the United States are identified as being twice exceptional, displaying an area of extreme strength and talent as well as a learning disability (e.g., ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, autism). An equal number of children are currently undiagnosed even though they meet criteria. There is a critical need for educators, psychologists, parents, and pediatric occupational therapists to understand better the unique needs and intervention protocols for these children. This highly practical, 90-minute course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to not only begin identifying children in this often overlooked and undertreated population but also to address what can often be the missing link in our intervention programs.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Define the term twice exceptional as it applies to students.
  2. Identify challenges encountered to providing appropriate diagnosis and intervention.
  3. List five immediate tools to share with parents and educators.
