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. 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.
