World-class psychologists, educators, and child development experts share tools and insights to help bright & quirky kids thrive, in this FREE online summit.
Could your child be twice exceptional (2e)?
Bright and Quirky kids are also called twice exceptional or 2e because they have both advanced abilities and lagging abilities at the same time. These are two exceptions to the norm. That's why they're so complex!
