In September 2011, The Center held its first seminar on the topic of twice-exceptional learners, supported by the Twice-Exceptional Foundation which is funded by the Arts Education Task Force established by Flora Templeton Stuart. The yearly seminar provides parents, educators, and students with information and strategies on supporting these learners, who are defined as having at least one exceptional ability and disability. Speakers have included Elizabeth Nielsen and Dr. Dennis Higgins on practical strategies and theory, Susan Baum of the International Center for Talent Development and professor emeritus at the college of New Rochelle on diagnosing and helping twice-exceptional learners, and educational consultant Daphne Pereles on the importance of a team approach.
