Monthly Webinar Series

The Neurodiversity Affirming Classroom

Twice-exceptional (2e) learners are both gifted and have another neurodivergent diagnosis (like autism, ADHD, or a learning disability) and need support for both their advanced cognitive abilities and areas of struggle. Drawing from experiences as a gifted education teacher and clinical mental health counselor, Emily Kircher-Morris will synthesize what we know about twice-exceptional learners to help teachers develop an awareness of how they can best help their 2e students find success academically, socially, and emotionally by creating a neurodiversity-affirming classroom environment.
