Day 1: Twice-Exceptional Students: An Introduction – Who Are They? What Do They Need?
 
There is increased understanding about the importance of creativity in education for both the individual and society as a whole. In order to nurture creativity in the classroom, educators must approach education from a strength-based perspective. This is especially beneficial for gifted students who also have learning and/or behavioral differences.
 
In this workshop we will examine the research on twice-exceptionality and explore the practical implications of these findings as educators work to build creative classroom environments that highlights the motivation, strengths, perseverance, and resilience of this gifted population while also addressing the challenges that they have as a result of their individual disabilities.
 
 
 
Day 2: Addressing the Social-Emotional Needs of Twice-Exceptional Students
 
Students who are twice exceptional possess a variety of strengths while also facing challenges related to being Gifted &. While a great deal of focus has been on their academic strengths and challenges, they have unique social-emotional needs must also be recognized and addressed within the educational setting.
 
This workshop will focus on the understanding of the unique social and emotional needs of twice-exceptional students. Participants will explore characteristics of this gifted population and their needs, developmental traits, and vulnerabilities. Additionally, an introduction to current educational approaches and guidance will be discussed.
