Join us in our mission to make a difference in the lives of 2e learners

Your support makes a difference! 

 Through Dec 31, up to $20K of donations will be matched by generous donors 

REEL ensures that twice-exceptional (2e) students thrive in school and at home.

 

We raise the awareness and understanding of Silicon Valley parents and educators through resources, events, tools, workshops, and services.

 

Do you know a bright child who struggles to show it in an academic setting? Read our checklist to see if they might be 2e:

Twice-exceptional learners have both high ability and potential as well as complex challenges such as autism, dyslexia, and ADHD, among others.

 

They have deep passions and many strengths, but are sometimes seen as lazy or obstinate.
