Have you visited our YouTube channel, Your2eTV? On March 2 of 2016 we posted our newest video, this one featuring Beverly Trail, Ed.D, author of the book Twice-Exceptional Gifted Children (from Prufrock Press). At SENG 2015, Beverly sat down with the publishers of 2e Newsletter and offered all kinds of tips for educating twice-exceptional students. We hope you find it useful. Thanks, Beverly! Find the video.
You'll also find a video on "the basics" — use it to let those unfamiliar with twice-exceptionality discover what it's all about. Another video features 2e expert Susan Baum providing some basic tips to both parents and educators. And a third video features educational consultant Matthew Wanzenberg on the transition from high school to college for twice-exceptional students, and how a coach can help during that transition. And there are more videos to come in the near future.
