Twice Exceptional

Twice Exceptional 
Referring to intellectually gifted children who have some form of disability.   These children are considered twice exceptional because of their intellectual gifts and because of their special needs.

From the Learning Disabilities Association of America:   Congress has reintroduced the bipartisan Respond, Innovate, Succeed, and Empower (RISE) Act, which, if passed, would require colleges to accept an IEP or 504 plan as evidence of disability when a student is seeking accommodations in college.    Support the passage of the RISE Act and reach out to your representatives by joining our campaign.
