Accelerated and Enriched Instruction → Twice Exceptional Students and Services
Twice exceptional students are identified as gifted and talented and also have met criteria for an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a Section 504 plan. These students have a unique profile of significant strengths and weaknesses, thus they require support and special services in order to access appropriately challenging curriculum. The information on this site is designed to support parents and educators as they strive to identify and determine appropriate services for twice exceptional students in MCPS.
MCPS is one of the very few school districts in the nation that offers comprehensive services for students who are twice exceptional at the elementary, middle and high school level. Twice exceptional students access accelerated and enriched instruction with appropriate supports and services at their local school, within a magnet/choice program, or within a special education service.
2E at W&M: Twice Exceptional Conference- The 2e @ W&M: Twice Exceptional Online Conference focuses on twice-exceptional (high-ability/gifted with learning differences/disabilities or neurodiverse) children at home and at school. The conference aims to provide research based and best practice, resources, support, and community building opportunities to educators, administrators, parents, practitioners, counselors, and district personnel.
