Happy New Year to subscribers and friends of 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter!

The focus of this first issue of 2015 is building on the strengths of twice-exceptional learners. In our lead article, educator Cynthia Hansen shares how she has helped 2e kids improve their executive skills by tapping into their love of solving puzzles and other forms of mathematical thinking. Then, in a Parent’s Perspective column, Sarah Mitchell describes how the game Minecraft helped her daughter showcase her skills and bond with others who share her interests.

As always, you’ll find our regular columns and features in this issue. Plus, check our website for the conclusion of coverage of sessions from the 2014 NAGC conference. Also look for the debut in this issue of a new column highlighting the work of the 2e Center for Research and Professional Development in Studio City, CA. In this first column, center director Susan Baum shares the results of a 2014 survey that a number of 2e Newsletter readers took part in. Look for additional research findings, teaching ideas, and parenting suggestions from the center in future columns. 

2e Newsletter has been around since 2003. Since then, we’ve built up an extensive archive of articles relevant to raising and educating twice-exceptional children. Remember that, as a newsletter subscriber, you have access to these articles; and, if there are entire issues that you’d like to have for yourself or to pass along to someone else, all back issues are available for purchase. Look for ordering information on our website: www.2enewsletter.com/topic_store_newsletterBackIssues.html issues.htm.

We thank you for reading and supporting 2e Newsletter.
