Summary:
2e students are intellectually gifted children who have some form of disability. This population is typically very misunderstood. Unfortunately, although education researchers have known about 2e students for decades, most teachers and administrators are still largely unaware of these children, leaving them overlooked and underserved. Carol Maleug, MCGT President/SENG Faciliator/Center for K-12 Guidance Educational Consultant/University of St. Thomas Research Project Manager, will be the subject matter expert joining us for Q&A.
