Twice exceptional students (2e), gifted with a disability, often feel twice as defeated or twice as stupid. Here’s what one family of a 2e child has posted on their refrigerator. Can you see that he has twice as many strengths as challenges? (Some of that is soccer talk, like “snake eyes” and “50-50-balls” because this kid is a soccer fanatic!) What a sweet way to affirm this young man. He was the contributor to the list but was NOT expected to write it.
Look carefully at his strengths and decide whether he is likely to be successful in life. My vote is “Without a doubt!”
