Prince George’s County Public Schools recognizes and nurtures outstanding potential in all children, including Twice Exceptional learners. The term “twice-exceptional,” also referred to as “2e,” is used to describe gifted children who, have the characteristics of gifted students with the potential for high achievement and give evidence of one or more disabilities as defined by federal or state eligibility criteria. These disabilities may include specific learning disabilities (SLD), speech and language disorders, emotional disabilities, physical disabilities, autism spectrum, or other impairments such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Our mission is to create a learning environment that ensure twice exceptional learners will reach their highest potential and become productive citizens. Through implementation of evidence based strategies and dual differentiation strategies, all stakeholders will collaborate to ensure that students academic growth is commensurate with their intellectual abilities.
Classroom teachers, Talented and Gifted (TAG) teachers, special educators, related service providers, and professional school counselors work together to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of Twice Exceptional students.
