Letter from the Publishers

March, 2014

Welcome to the March issue of 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter. In this issue we look at a challenge to parents and educators alike – impulse and attention issues in 2e children. Three articles look at different aspects of this topic.

In our lead article professor and researcher Sydney Zentall helps us understand why these kids do what they do. Education consultant Richard Cash offers ways to help them learn the self-regulation skills that will help them be successful learners. And Suki Wessling, a parent and writer, gives an account of the effects that a child’s biochemistry might have on behavior.

Also in this issue we interview a 2e achiever, Sarah Renzulli, who describes the long tough journey from the child who “wasn’t college material” (due to struggles with reading, attention, and other learning skills) to Ph.D. recipient. And we launch a new column: 2e Tech. Marlo Payne Thurman, a member of the 2e Newsletter Editorial Advisory Board shares her perspectives on and recommendations for the latest in educational technology.

Speaking of our Editorial Advisory Board, we are pleased to welcome a new member: Dan Peters, psychologist, author, speaker, and frequent contributor to the newsletter. We are also sad to say goodbye to another Editorial Advisory Board member, psychologist Pat Schuler, who is retiring from her practice. We thank Pat for the many years of support she has given to 2e Newsletter and to the twice-exceptional community as a whole, and we wish her well.

Be sure to check our website often as well as our Facebook page and YouTube channel, Your2eTV. We’re always adding new information and programs.
