Nurturing Gifted Students with ADHD

September 27, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT


The 2e Playbook for Nurturing Gifted Students with ADHD

EXPERT: Lisa Dieker, Ph.D.

2e is a term used to describe “twice-exceptional” students who are academically gifted and also living with ADHD or another diagnosis like autism or learning differences. 2e students are undeniably bright, but often plagued by inconsistent performance at school due to other interfering symptoms. These students seldom receive special-education services, or they are considered “lazy” because they excel in some areas yet appear to lack the motivation to excel in others. The secret to unlocking greatness in a 2e student is recognizing their areas of giftedness by making work more challenging, while simultaneously identifying their areas of greatest need and inserting helpful accommodations and supports accordingly. Understandably, this can be difficult for parents or teachers.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How Lisa Dieker and her 2e son identified his greatest skills as well as the challenges that stood in his path
  • Techniques, ideas, and approaches that teachers can use to help students identified as 2e to strive and thrive in the classroom
  • How to ensure future pathways to college and careers among gifted students while effectively addressing areas of challenge
  • How parents can partner with educators to ensure success from preschool to college
