Intro to 2e Workshop - The founders of REEL present an interactive overview of 2e - what it is, why it matters, and effective approaches for supporting 2e learners. 2e students experience both high ability and learning challenges, which presents unique challenges in the classroom, including asynchronous development that may lead to anxiety and behavior issues.

2e Self Advocacy Panel—Help Your Student Understand Their Brain, and Their Teachers, Too! Helping students know how their brain learns—and how to talk with teachers about how they can modify assignments to fit your learning needs—is one of the most important skills 2e students should develop.
Strength-based Learning with Dr. Melanie Hayes - When kids are far from the bell curve in both directions, parents and educators tend to focus on shoring up weaknesses at the expense of bolstering strengths. However, strengths are where 2e kids build energy to face their challenges, boost their self-esteem, and their likely future careers will lie. Focusing on strengths should be a cornerstone of any 2e student’s educational plan.

Twice-exceptional students have few forums to express their lived educational experiences. REEL is pleased to launch “Living and Learning 2e,” a new blog and panel series dedicated to giving twice exceptional children, teens, and young adults a place to share their voices.
