Scott Barry kaufman has assembled the worlds experts in twice exceptional children to inform the way families and schools can educate with an eye towards maximizing potential and minimizing struggle. A long needed and excellent resource." --Gail Saltz, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry, The New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell School of Medicine; author of The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius "When it comes to understanding people who learn differently, Twice Exceptionality (2e) is perhaps one of the newest and most important concepts available to us right now. In recent years, Scott Barry Kaufman has emerged as one of the nation's most potent voices for those who learn differently, so it is fitting that through his unique lens and under his leadership, this first of its kind volume would find its way to our bookshelves. He has thoughtfully assembled some of the most essential minds from the fields of giftedness and intelligence to help us better understand 2e people of all ages and backgrounds. And, in a world where multiple intelligences inevitably converge with multiple identities, this diverse compendium on Twice Exceptionality is important and timely reading that will help steer educators, families, advocates, policy makers and the generally curious into a place of deeper compassion for those who learn differently-something we especially need as we move into the next decade of the 21st century." --Marc Smolowitz, Independent Filmmaker
