2E - Twice Exceptional 

Some children are both gifted and have learning disabilities.  These children can be referred to as 'Twice Exceptional' (2E) and often present unique parenting and educational challenges.

As described in the 2e-Twice Exceptional Newsletter, "The term [twice exceptional] refers to the fact that some gifted children are exceptional both because of their strengths and because of their limitations.  Coupled with high intelligence, these children also may have one or more learning disabilities, attention deficit, emotional or behavior problems, or other types of learning difficulties."
