Twice Exceptional Students

Twice exceptional (occasionally referred to as 2E or dually exceptional) is the term used to describe a child who is not only exceptionally able, but also has additional learning difficulties or a disability. A gifted child with learning difficulties, physical or emotional disabilities or who is on the autistic spectrum requires teachers that have specific training to accommodate the child’s “twice-exceptional” nature. It is also important that the learning environment addresses the unique needs of the twice exceptional child.

Choice provides the environment and staff that can best accommodate both aspects of a twice exceptional child’s personality through customized programming (by varying the pace, scope and complexity of the subject matter), specialized training of faculty (including Orton Gillingham multi-sensory teaching methods and ongoing professional development) and uniquely small class sizes.
