When the IEP is Not Enough: Strength-based, Talent-focused Planning for 2e Students

Twice-exceptional learners have a dual set of needs that separates them from other students with IEPs who do not have advanced abilities, interests, or talents. Unfortunately, the IEP is designed to address weaknesses with no consideration of how these students' advanced abilities complicate the situation. IEPs are designed to identify deficit areas and use strategies to "bring the learner up to grade level". Rarely, is there a talent development goal or language that considers these students’ need for enrichment and talent development. In this session, you will learn about the Suite of Tools and how to plan with students' strengths, interests, and talents in mind.

Why Before How: Inquiry Based Instruction and the Twice Exceptional Learner

Inquiry based instruction develops the ability to: actively listen and discuss content; critically consider information before making conclusions; tackle deep and complex ideas; and form evidence based opinions. Students are capable of self-awareness, insight and empathy when they are given the procedural training by their teachers to support peer discussions that tap into many of their developmental and cognitive needs. Students come away with a sense of earned responsibility and an increased ability to negotiate with diplomacy.

Don’t You Forget About Me: Understanding the Social and Emotional World of Gifted Students

Too often the social-emotionl needs of gifted and advanced learners are overlooked because teachers and parents are focused on their cognitive abilities and academic achievement. As a result, gifted students may feel misunderstood and suffer from perfectionism, perceived unmet expectations, and feelings of alienation and loneliness. Through clips from the movie Breakfast Club the panel of experts will explore the needs of these youngsters with some tips for meeting their needs.
