Letter from the Publishers

November, 2017

Welcome to our last issue of 2017. The topic this time is relationships. As many of our readers probably know, our 2e kids thrive when they have strong bonds at school — relationship is everything. Speaking from personal experience, we were in for a good school year if our boys had a good relationship with their teachers and a bad school year if they didn’t.

In this issue our authors look at different aspects of the role that relationship plays for 2e students, their teachers, and their families. Psychologist Devon MacEachron focuses on building a strong bond between student and teacher. Consultant Julie Skolnick offers strategies for building a successful parent/educator relationship; and educator and counselor Scott Lutostanski stresses the need to shift the focus from fixing our 2e kids to building supportive and collaborative relationships with them.

As always, you’ll find our regular columns and features in this issue as well as a review of a new edition of a classic book in the 2e field: To Be Gifted and Learning Disabled. Also in this issue is the start of our coverage of two events that took place this fall: the biennial symposium of the 2e Center for Research and Professional Development entitled Vision and Leadership in 2e Education, and the 2017 annual convention of the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC). Coverage will continue on our website and in the January issue.

As the year draws to a close, we wish you a happy holiday season and the best of wishes for a happy and healthy new year. Thank you for subscribing!

— Linda C. Neumann and J. Mark Bade
