About The Event

 The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), generally known for providing appropriate special education instruction for students with disabilities, also offers various opportunities for the strengths of twice-exceptional (2e) students to be recognized. In this session, a longtime special and gifted educator explains IDEA-provided opportunities for 2e strengths to be recognized in five phases of the special education process: child find, assessment, Individual Education Planning, instruction, and transition to postsecondary education and work.

The session supports parents who seek to have their children’s strengths recognized within a process that generally focuses on student challenges.
