What people are saying
“2e children are such an overlooked part of our society. Thanks for bringing the issue to the forefront with this excellent presentation.”
“Fantastic! Absolutely everything resonated with me, both as a 2e adult and as an educator.”
“Great presentation. The information in response to the questions brought me to tears. I have been fighting the “lazy” label for my son for years. He is gifted but his handwriting is illegible. Writing a paragraph takes hours, but he could give a Ph.D. level explanation of the topic verbally. Thank you so much!”
“This was one of my favorite ADDitude presentations! The information has been invaluable for helping me to understand what services to pursue for my son. His life will be vastly improved, and at 15 years old, there’s no time to waste! I learned so much and I now know where to look for additional resources and services. I just love how the presenters are starting a dialogue on 2e and can’t thank them enough!”
“Thank you for pointing out that I should focus on my child’s gifts and abilities in art, writing, and music. Schools often put most of there energy is correcting deficits (which is necessary), but rarely have time to focus on children’s gifts and abilities. I appreciated the strategies mentioned for increasing a child’s self-esteem by focusing on these gifts.”
