2E is also known as twice exceptional. Twice exceptional learners are gifted but also have learning challenges. A 2E child may have Asperger’s Syndrome yet be gifted in one or more subjects. Other 2E children may be verbally gifted yet have a math learning disability. Educating twice exceptional children can be difficult. To address these challenges, a new school in Phoenix or Scottsdale, Arizona is being planned.
- The school plans to educate up to 25 third through eighth grade students.
- Speech and occupational therapy will be integrated into the classroom.
- Target open date – August 2009
- Estimated annual tuition will run between $20k and $25k
