“They vex their parents. They are often considered “at risk”… but they may very well grow up to change the world if they are given the chance to demonstrate and develop their abilities.”

“2e: Twice Exceptional is an honest, up-close look at what it’s like to be – or to be the parent or teacher of — a young person who’s both gifted and coming to terms with a learning difference. Essential viewing for anyone interested in understanding where our next generation of game-changing outliers may be coming from.”
