Rallies for changes to the dysfunctional systems that trap brilliant kids with ADHD, Aspergers, and Autism in misdiagnosis Children known as "Twice Exceptional" (or "2e") are kids who are gifted and who have a physical or mental impairment. Often a child's disability masks his giftedness, causing educators and other adults to focus on his weaknesses rather than developing his talents. In other cases, a child's giftedness can mask her disability, meaning she won't receive the special education services that could help her manage and possibly overcome her disability. This book is a call to action for parents and educators to rally for changes to the educational and mental health systems that keep these children trapped. Offers a new paradigm for dealing with gifted kids with impairments Reveals the tremendous gifts these often misunderstood kids have to offer Kennedy and Banks are the coauthors of the bestselling book The ADHD-Autism Connection Alternatives to end the never-ending cycle of chasing a diagnosis to explain gift childrens' (2e) weaknesses instead of having the world recognize the tremendous gifts they have to offer.
