A Programme For the Twice Exceptional
Winstedt’s Curie-Einstein Programme is designed specifically for twice-exceptional students. The term “twice-exceptional,” also referred to as “2e,” is used to describe gifted children who have the characteristics of gifted students with the potential for high achievement and give evidence of one or more learning disorder/s. Across the globe, students who fall under this umbrella are known to be at a disadvantage, despite their outstanding talents. At Winstedt, we believe it is extremely important that these students are given ample opportunities to be able to demonstrate their abilities and perform continuously at the level of their talents. We believe that all gifted and talented learners need support and extension across the curriculum as much as possible and, opportunities must be given to allow for extension and challenge every day.
