A Parent's Guide to IEPs for Twice-Exceptional Students
California Bay Area Edition

Disponible en Español

Twice-exceptional (2e) learners have both high ability and potential as well as complex challenges such as autism, dyslexia, and ADHD, among others. 
 
REEL strives to ensure Silicon Valley twice-exceptional students thrive in school by raising parent and educator awareness and understanding of practical, research-based strategies to address their needs successfully. REEL provides resources, events, tools, workshops, and services. 
 
Do you know a bright child who struggles to show it in an academic setting? Want to learn more about what it means to be 2e?
