Take a Byte: Technology for 2e Students
Collins, Linda E.
Parenting for High Potential, v5 n2 p16-19 Feb 2016
"Twice-exceptional," also referred to as "2e," is a term used to describe gifted children who have the characteristics of gifted students and give evidence of one or more disabilities as defined by federal or state eligibility criteria. These disabilities may include specific learning disabilities (SpLD), speech and language disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, physical disabilities, autism spectrum, or other impairments such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Twice-exceptional (2e) students can struggle with organization of cognitive tasks due to executive function challenges, and may struggle with social cues, sensory issues, learning disabilities, anxiety, and depression. Because of these challenges, school is not always the euphoric place parents and teachers hope it will be, but students' affinity with technology can be used to support study, organization, social skills, and enrichment in interest areas.
