We can become so overwhelmed with current challenges of raising gifted or twice-exceptional children that we lose perspective. We fear they’ll never fit in, be unable to manage away from home, never be able to earn a living. But so many do manage to do these things. Despite rough times they may have as kids, most will eventually find their passions. Around those passions, they’ll find acceptance and rewards. While they may not keep to the schedule and travel the path that most others do, be confident that they’ll arrive at their destination nevertheless —the destination that’s right for them.
Past SENG Director Linda C. Neumann is the editor of 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter, a bi-monthly print and electronic publication that focuses on twice-exceptional children – those who have high abilities and LDs, either learning differences or learning disabilities. Written for parents, educators, mental health professionals, and others who work with these children, issues feature articles by experts in the field plus reviews of books, websites, and other resources. SENG thanks the Twice-Exceptional Newsletter for being a Gold Sponsor of our 2014 Annual Conference.
