Twice Exceptional

COMMONWEALTH ACADEMY'S 2E PROGRAM

 

Twice-exceptional students, also referred to as 2e children, are highly intelligent students who struggle in school due to a learning difference, ADHD or sensory integration disorder. While 2e children often have extraordinary talents, it is also important to recognize that they face difficulties that could mask those talents or prevent them from reaching their best potential.

With parental permission, Commonwealth Academy offers individual as well as group pull-out sessions to engage and energize our 2e students. The 2e program is completely optional and entirely driven by a student's interests. Our 2e sessions consist of healthy extensions to the existing curriculum and/or individualized projects of the student's choice. In some cases, a student may be given the opportunity to deepen their learning in their content classes. 

Ms. Heather McKinzey, a C/A teacher who is internationally-certified as an ADHD Coach and Teacher of the Gifted and Talented, leads our 2e programming. She is uniquely qualified to implement a rich 2e program that provides support and coaching to make the most of our students' gifts.
