  • Ease 2e Pressure with Two Mindset Shifts

    Jacqui Byrne
    The life of a 2e kid (a gifted kid with co-occurring challenges), can be marked by chronic disconnect – between what they need vs. what they receive; between how they’re perceived vs. what they actually experience.

    If you’re new to this 2e journey and are feeling a little overwhelmed, you’re not alone. As a parent of 2e kids myself, I’ve felt those feelings on my similar journey.
