The 2e Reading Guide

Linda Neumann and Mark Bade of Glen Ellen Media have just published a fantastic reading guide for parents of twice-exceptional (2e)children. These are children with exceptionalities in areas of strengths and areas of limitation. For example, a child with gifted cognitive ability who has difficulty learning to write can be considered to be twice-exceptional. This is a fascinating area of study and Glen Ellen Media is leading the way in helping to ensure that the appropriate resources are being disseminated to the parents in need.

The guide is titled, The 2e Reading Guide: Essential Books for Understanding the Twice-exceptional Child and can be found on the web at http://www.2enewsletter.com/. I recommend this guide and website for any parent with a bright child who demonstrates some type of behavioral, learning, or social challenge.
