Bright Not Broken: Gifted Kids, ADHD and Autism


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
The gifts and talents of some of our most gifted children may never be recognized because these children fall into a group known as twice exceptional, or 2e. Twice-exceptional children are both gifted and diagnosed with a disability - often ADHD or an autism spectrum disorder - leading teachers and parents to overlook the child's talents and focus soley on the child's weaknesses. This book identifies who 2e children are and looks at why they are stuck. It provides a whole child model for parents and educators to strengthen and develop a child's innate gifts while also intervening to support the deficits.

Diane Kennedy is a longtime advocate of 2e children.
