What happens when a child’s giftedness seems to “cancel” a learning disability? Often, neither exceptionality is properly identified, resulting in frustration, anxiety and depression. Discover helpful strategies for recognizing and supporting twice-exceptional students and hear firsthand from a student whose “stealth” dyslexia and processing disorder masked her giftedness for over a decade.

In this course, participants will:
  • Hear first-hand what it means to be multi-exceptional from a student who is gifted and dyslexic
  • Understand the academic and emotional challenges faced in working with and/or living with a student who has multi-exceptionalities
  • Analyze the positive and negative impact that labeling may have on both a child and the parents
  • Increase their awareness of the “masks” that multi-exceptional students may wear and strategies for aiding them
