Harnessing Hidden Potential: Empowering Twice-Exceptional Students Beyond Traditional Classrooms 

This presentation will spotlight innovative educational practices that transcend conventional classroom boundaries and are designed explicitly for twice-exceptional students. Sam Young, Head of School of a 2E program called Young Scholars Academy, will delve into creating strength-based, engaging learning environments.

The session will feature real-world applications, showcasing strength-identification strategies and educational approaches. This interactive discussion aims to equip professionals with practical tools and insights, enhancing their ability to support twice-exceptional learners.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of strength-based educational philosophies and actionable strategies, as well as tangible resources that can be immediately applied to their practices.
