Myth #5: Addressing weaknesses should be the top priority when helping 2E students.
The National Education Association stresses that programs for 2E learners should be individualized to meet both special education and gifted needs. One isn’t more important than the other.
Some school districts even have individualized learning plans to address specialized instruction for gifted students. Others have special programs to address the unique needs of 2E students. No matter how your school handles it, playing to your child’s strengths is best practice.
