Twice Exceptional Kids

Do you have a child that has characteristics of gifted with potential for high achievement and evidence of a learning disability, speech or language challenge, emotional/behavioral disorder, physical disability, autism spectrum or other struggles such as ADHD?  They are considered twice-exceptional because they fall into the exceptional range statistically for their cognitive, academic, or creative abilities and potential, and also fall in the lower end of exceptional in their deficit area. This asynchrony, or uneven development, can cause extreme frustration, stress, and emotional and behavioral reactions. Kathleen will share techniques for advocating for your ā€œ2eā€ child at school and in life while keeping your sanity in the process.  Learn about the strengths and needs of twice-exceptional students and support available for parents.

She offers on site step-by-step supportive coaching with emphasis on cognitive and behavioral techniques. She is a SENG Model Parent Support Group facilitator and a certified facilitator trainer.
