Summary "Bright, talented children diagnosed with developmental or learning disorders are known as 'Twice Exceptional' (or 2e). Because giftedness and disability often mask one another, many 2e kids aren't identified by our current mental health and educational systems--and as a result they don't receive the therapies or special educational services that can minimize their challenges and build on their talents. Despite their giftedness, 2e children often underachieve, drop out, and have poor life outcomes. Bright Not Broken offers parents and professionals proven alternatives for identifying and supporting 2e children. This revolutionary book will resonate with parents and teachers everywhere, showing that there is hope for bright children who have been misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Addresses fundamental problems in our current mental health and education systems and how these impact 2e children. Offers hope for 2e children and shows how to develop their true potential. Contributor Temple Grandin is an internationally known advocate for individuals with autism. This important resource shows parents and educators how to help 2e children become capable adults"--Provided by publisher.
