A Programme For the Twice Exceptional
The Winstedt School’s Curie-Einstein Program is designed specifically for twice-exceptional students. The term “twice-exceptional,” also referred to as “2e,” is used to describe children who have the characteristics of gifted students with the potential for high achievement and give evidence of one or more learning difference(s). Across the globe, students who fall under this umbrella are known to be at a disadvantage, despite their talents. In some cases, twice-exceptional children may use their strengths and gifts to mask their learning challenges, while in other cases, these children’s learning differences may mask their giftedness. The program aims to support 2e students by leveraging their strengths, gifts and interests while fostering their social-emotional and executive functioning skills.
