2e News has set out to promote and maintain fruitful conversations among parents, educators, and other industry professionals. The resources on this website and the articles published in their print magazine, Variations 2e — Not All Great Minds Think Alike, are some of our favorites for perspectives on 2e education and cognitive diversity.
The Minnesota Council for the Gifted and Talented envisions that ALL Minnesota families and communities are empowered with equitable access to gifted & talented resources, support, and opportunities. MCGT is a very active and diverse group of professionals and parents who provide SO MANY opportunities for gifted learners, 2e learners, and their families.
The Twice Exceptional Children’s Advocacy’s mission is to help parents better understand twice-exceptionality and their potentially 2e children. TECA is working to create a strong, vibrant, accepting community for 2e children and their families by supporting parents. We do spend more time utilizing industry/professional resources, but parent groups like this are so important for the growth of 2e learners and the 2e community as a whole.
Bright and Quirky is an absolute treasure trove of 2e information across multiple media platforms. Bright and Quirky's founder, Debbie Steinberg Kuntz is a licensed marriage and family therapist and has firsthand experience raising 2e children. She has done so much for the 2e community and there are tons of learning opportunities for parents and professionals alike.
TiLT Parenting was founded in 2016 by author, speaker, and parenting activist Debbie Reber as a podcast, educational resource, and community aimed at helping parents raising differently wired children — including learning disabilities, ADHD, gifted, twice-exceptional, autism, sensory processing challenges, anxiety, and more — do so from a place of confidence, connection, and joy. We particularly love the podcast!
Sometimes 2e students and their parents get stuck thinking about their learning differences and their challenges rather than their gifts- those gifts matter! The National Association for Gifted Children provides a great deal of foundational information about 2e learners and over the years we've seen more and more of their 2e conversations around gifts and strengths... that's what we like to see!
