Letter from the Publishers

May, 2017

Welcome to the May/June issue of 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter.

As we said in our last issue, twice-exceptional children are a blend of two sets of often-conflicting characteristics, those related to their giftedness and those related to their learning disabilities or learning challenges. In this issue, we focus on the latter, on the learning disability (LD) side of 2e.

The authors of our lead article, Joanna Haase and Sharon Duncan, suggest creative ways to help 2e children address their challenges that “don’t feel like therapy.” Kim Schuchman and Jen Merrill return to 2e Newsletter to share the insights they have gained as parents dealing with the challenges of raising bright children with learning differences. Also on this topic, we offer resources to help you expand your understanding of the LD side of 2e, including the announcement of the latest edition of the classic book in the field To Be Gifted and Learning Disabled.

If you’re still wondering how to keep your 2e kiddo engaged this summer, check our annual summer camp listing for ideas and information. And of course the issue contains, as always, our regular columns and features.

Be sure to check our website often (www.2eNewsletter.com) as well as our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/2eNewsletter) and YouTube channel (http://goo.gl/RGtcJe). We’re always adding new information. And subscribers, don’t forget that you have access to 14 years’ worth of articles in our archives.

As the school year draws to a close (at least in the U.S.), we hope you’ll remember a favorite teacher or administrator with a gift subscription to 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter. And we wish you a wonderful summer!

— Linda C. Neumann and J. Mark Bade
