Letter from the Publishers

September, 2018

Welcome to the 90th issue of 2e: Twice-Exceptional Newsletter. This is the final issue of the newsletter in its current form. Starting in November, it will have a new name — 2e News — a new format, and new publishers — Bridges 2e Media. What will remain the same is the focus: providing information on raising and educating twice-exceptional kids.

In this issue, we look back on the 15 years since we published the premier issue of 2e Newsletter in October of 2003. Members of our Editorial Advisory Board offer their perspectives on the state of 2e from those early days to the present.

Elsewhere in this issue, you’ll find the usual news and events features and our regular columns by Bob Seney and Sylvia Rimm, both off whom will continue as columnists in the newsletter’s new incarnation. Be sure to check out the announcement of a new graduate school in the column from the 2e Center — one that will award degrees in cognitive diversity as well as a certificate in twice-exceptional education.

Back in the fall of 2003, we introduced this publication and ourselves this way:

We are a husband and wife team, both longtime professional writers and the parents of two 2e kids. It’s taken us many years to reach the point where we feel we have a pretty good understanding of the needs our children have and the challenges they face. It’s been a long hard struggle to find the books that held the explanations, the professionals who had the understanding, and the organizations that could provide the support we needed. One of our main goals in starting this newsletter is to make it less of a struggle for other parents.

We hope that we have reached this goal.

Thanks to all of our readers through the years. While we will no longer be publishing the newsletter, we will continue to develop and update booklets in the Spotlight on 2e Series and provide information to the 2e community under a new name, The 2e Resource. This website will be a remake of our current newsletter website, with many of the same features. Look for us in November at 2eResource.com.

— Linda C. Neumann and J. Mark Bade
