Reminder: Don’t Miss Breaking Through Walls 2e Conference

Calling all parents of Twice Exceptional Learners:

Breaking Through Walls- Breakthroughs in Twice Exceptional Education Conference & Gala is tomorrow and you won’t want to miss this amazing opportunity to connect and collaborate with educational professionals, physicians, lawyers, advocates and other parents at this groundbreaking conference. Book your ticket now to the premiere NYC conference for parents of Twice Exceptional children.

Twice Exceptional, or 2e learners are children who have extraordinary talents and abilities yet face challenges such as dyslexia or ADHD that may cause learning difficulties. Many parents struggle with finding the right resources and programs to create the best learning experience for their 2e child. Susan Baum and Steven Owen addressed this challenge in their book, To Be Gifted and Learning Disabled: Strategies for Helping Bright Students with LD, ADHD and More saying, “Too often the strengths and interests of Gifted-Learning Disabled [2e] students are either unrecognized, seen but ignored, put on hold, or are irksome because they are the wrong talents for conventional school achievement.”

Breaking Through Walls  promises to be a unique conference that will give parents the right resources to help them understand and nurture their 2E learner.
