Letter from the Publishers

November, 2016

In this year-end issue of 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter, our focus is on finding the right fit in a school. Some parents of twice-exceptional children are fortunate to have their kids in a school or other learning situation where they thrive or at least where things go smoothly and the children make progress. Others, however, are not so fortunate.

This issue provides information and resources to this latter group. There’s our lead article by educational consultant Heidi Molbak on steps to take and resources to use to find a school well suited to a 2e child’s needs. There’s an account of a family’s quest for the right school for their son and the difference it made. Plus, there’s an interview with author Jade Rivera on what constitutes the “right” learning environment for twice-exceptional students along with a review of her new book on micro-schools.

Elsewhere in this issue, you’ll find our usual columns and features plus conference coverage. There are write-ups of some of the 2e-relevant sessions from this year’s NAGC convention in Disney World — with more to come in the January issue of 2e Newsletter and on our website — and highlights from a new regional conference held in New York by the organization Twice Exceptional Children’s Advocacy (TECA).

As 2016 draws to an end, we wish you good holidays and a happy, healthy, and productive new year. And we thank you for subscribing to 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter!

— Linda C. Neumann and J. Mark Bade
