The newest booklet in the Series, Writing and the 2e Learner, might help your struggling writer! Subscribe to their newsletter, order their booklets.

What is 2e?  Maybe you know a bright child who seems lazy — a child who just never seems to work up to his or her potential. Some gifted children have learning difficulties that make it hard for them to display their true abilities. Children who are gifted in intelligence account for three to five percent of all children. Of those, however, as many as one-fifth may have some kind of learning difficulty — estimates vary greatly.

One common term for these children is GT/LD — gifted and talented/learning disabled. Another — one that encompasses a broader range of problems that affect learning – is twice exceptional, or 2e. This term refers to the fact that this group of gifted children are exceptional both because of their strengths and because of their limitations. Coupled with high intelligence, these children also may have one or more learning disabilities, attention deficit, autism spectrum disorder,  emotional or behavior problems, or other types of learning challenges. 


"When a child is struggling, the whole family is affected. At the Child Mind Institute we want to help you make good decisions for your kids and navigate the challenges of parenting. We explore the concerns and challenges we hear about most from parents and provide expert guidance on how to respond in the most effective way. And if you have a child who needs support, we offer resources that can help you get the best care for that child and the best outcome for your family."
