Your bright and quirky child CAN have a beautiful life.

Your child isn't bad, broken, or lazy, but they could 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.
