Just because a child is gifted doesn't mean they don't have other types of neurodivergence, like ADHD, autism, dyslexia, and more. Conversely, even children with one of these diagnoses can be cognitively gifted. Raising Twice-Exceptional Children provides parents with a roadmap to understand the complex makeup of their "gifted-plus," or twice-exceptional, child or teen. It also:

• Guides parents to understand a child's diagnosis.
• Helps parents meet a child's social-emotional needs, build self-regulation skills and goal setting, and teach self-advocacy.
• Helps parents collaborate and communicate with teachers and school staff.
• Gives advice on finding strength-based strategies that support development at home.
• Normalizes parents' experiences and destigmatizes perceptions of neurodivergent kids.

For too long, these kids have fallen through the cracks, but the neurodiversity movement is shining light on their unique needs. As the fields of education and psychology discover more about twice-exceptionality, parents need information about how to best support their neurodivergent kids by leveraging their strengths while supporting their struggles.

About the Author:

Emily Kircher-Morris, LPC, is a mental health counselor for gifted and twice-exceptional people and host of The Neurodiversity Podcast. Growing up as a twice-exceptional kid led her to pursue supporting neurodivergent kids for her career. She has two identified twice-exceptional kids, and her youngest is still to-be-determined.
