Imagine a student who's a creative force, but struggles with organization. Or a whiz at math who gets frustrated with reading. These are just some of the unique challenges faced by twice-exceptional (2e) learners, who are identified as gifted and as having a specific learning disability. This course will help you better understand and support your 2e learners so you can champion them! You’ll learn about the essential shift from deficit-based to strengths-based thinking, and how to identify potential learning challenges, executive dysfunction, and processing disorders, through case studies. Explore how motivation strategies and microgoals can inspire 2e learners, and develop a resource to support 2e students’ mental health and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) skills. Finally, you will build a lesson to help students understand and celebrate neurodiversity. This resource-packed course will expand your toolbox to support and celebrate your twice-exceptional learners in meaningful and impactful ways.

This course format builds from module to module in a way that allows you to work through each of the essential ideas in smaller, more focused segments. You’ll find great resources and applicable assignments, distributed over 10 modules.
