Students who are advanced in some learning areas and challenged in others (or, “twice-exceptional/2E”) have a unique profile of significant strengths and weaknesses. They may have behavior issues. Sometimes they may have an IEP (Individual Education Plan). Some examples of learning area challenges:
- Students with behavioral challenges such as difficulty focusing, self control issues, and defiance of classroom rules and procedures.
- Students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, or visual or auditory processing difficulties.
- Limited English Proficient Students are often enrolled in READ 180 or System 44 to help support their acquisition of English, but may be advanced in math.
