Parent Support Parents are faced with the daily struggle of parenting and supporting their 2e child. They need a community of support as they navigate their child’s learning challenges; maintain a strong, loving connection; and juggle the roles they must play as advocate, teacher, therapist and parent. Working with an EEC coach offers parents the expert support they need and deserve.
School Support. Teachers want help understanding the complex neurodiverse profile of twice exceptional students, and how to create a strength-based, talent-focused curriculum. The research defines this approach as using knowledge of the student’s strengths, cognitive profiles, learning preferences, interests and talents to improve their learning and engage them in the curriculum. Their strengths and interests can be leveraged for skill development in academics, self-regulation, executive function and emotional regulation.
Clinical Support. Clinicians play a vital role in supporting the needs of 2e students. It’s important to find a therapist and prescriber who understands the dichotomy between the 2e student’s strengths and weaknesses, and how it causes great anxiety and emotional stress. Chronic unmet expectations impact self-esteem and self-efficacy.
Special Education Support. School service providers are critical players in bridging the communication gap between school and home. They can become the student’s closest academic ally within the school day – a safe space for support and learning. A special educator who fosters a strength-based relationship with their 2e student can also attend to their learning needs.
