2e 101: A Parents’ Guide to Understanding and Supporting Twice-Exceptional Children

Twice-exceptional children — those who are gifted and have a learning disability or neurological disorder like ADHD — often struggle with issues related to social-emotional growth and/or regulation. As a result, many of these students battle anxiety, stress, emotional regulation, social anxiety, and executive dysfunction.

This webinar will outline the latest neurological research on the twice-excetional brain and how it affects self-understanding. This presentation is designed to inform and provide practical strategies to help your 2e child and family move from a place of simply surviving to thriving in every environment, including school. Parents will learn that developing social and emotional foundations are critical to the success of every 2e child in any life setting — school, home, or within the community.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The latest research on typical and atypical brain development
  • The facts about atypical brain development and what it looks like in daily life
  • The foundations of neurodiversity and its impact on daily living
  • Why neurodiversity matters with twice-exceptional children
  • How to use the understanding of neurodiversity to inform practical parenting, teaching, and advocacy strategies

The speaker is Dr. Michael Postma who is a teacher, administrator, consultant, speaker, and author dedicated to the holistic development of both gifted and twice-exceptional children through his new company Gifted & Thriving, LLC.
