Twice Exceptionality: Australian Research Update
Recognition of, and research into Twice Exceptionality (2e) is a growing area of interest. This presentation will provide an update on research that has been undertaken in Australia on Twice Exceptional students. Much of the research undertaken in Australia has taken a case study approach and sought to understand the Twice Exceptional student's point of view. Before 2e students can have their educational needs met teachers need to have an understanding and knowledge of how to identify and provide appropriate educational programs for these students in order for them to achieve their potential. What do teachers know about these students? Are they being identified? How many of these students are there in Australian classrooms? These questions and others will be addressed though discussion of Australian 2e research from the teacher's perspective.
