Twice-Exceptional
Students Seminar

Meeting the needs of all students in today’s educational climate has become increasingly challenging for educators.  The challenge is particularly true for a group of students whose needs require program options that include both special and gifted education. This workshop will:

  • Utilize the new National Twice-Exceptional Community of Practice definition to explore characteristics, programming options, and strategies to support learning for this unique population of learners
  • Discuss collaborative approaches to building support
  • Reflect on what can be learned from twice-exceptional students and how, in meeting their needs, we might better serve all students

Daphne PerelesDaphne Pereles, M.S., is an independent educational consultant specializing in the areas of twice-exceptional and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).  Over the course of her more than 30-year career, she has held positions as a general, special, and gifted education teacher, a district-level special education and gifted coordinator specializing in twice-exceptional, and as Executive Director for Learning Supports at the Colorado Department of Education. She has published multiple articles, most recently in Teaching Exceptional Children (March, 2015) and Gifted Child Today (October, 2015).  She is an active member of the National 2e Community of Practice, a multi-organizational group founded to create a consistent message across educational groups regarding the support of 2e individuals.

Eila credit will be available for educators.
