"Helping Children, Teens, Adults, and Families Realize Their Potential"

Is My Child Gifted and/or Twice-Exceptional (2E)? You might notice that your child has advanced vocabulary, verbal expression, or an excellent memory. Your child might have heightened emotional depth and sensitivity. They may demonstrate early or unusual mathematics ability. It is common for gifted children to be “too old and too young” at the same time. While a child is advanced in certain area, they lag behind in other types of social and emotional behavior. This is known as asynchronous development. In addition, many gifted children struggle with anxiety, attention problems, dyslexia, Asperger’s disorder, and more. These kids are called “twice-exceptional” or “2e.”
