Support 2e At Your Child's School

We believe that any school can incorporate 2e-friendly practices that will benefit not only 2e students, but all students.

Why isn’t my 2e child thriving at school?

When a student’s abilities don’t line up with established norms, conventional wisdom says to focus on remediating those skills. But this deficit-focused approach can quickly dampen the student’s self-confidence, enthusiasm – even their willingness to try.

For a 2e student to feel valued and connected enough to be open to learning, it’s essential to first identify and focus on their strengths and interests. When this approach is combined with executive functioning support and social-emotional learning, and delivered in a supportive learning environment among intellectual peers, 2e students can thrive at school.

2e Best Practices

  • Talent development

  • Differentiated instruction
  • Experiential learning
